Upcoming events – including Granny’s Swap Shop!

by Anneleen on October 5th, 2012
We’ve been a bit quiet on the blog  just lately, but have lots of great crafty events coming up to tell you about!
This coming Monday, 8th October, we will have a crafty drop-in at the Red Squirrel, as usual, from 6pm to 8pm. If you’ve still got a copy of The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox, from last week’s book group, please can you bring it along and give it to Fiona?

The following week it is Swap Shop time! Here’s all the info from Andrea:
‘Hey, Crafters!
Do you have 23 granny squares completed for a blanket that requires hundreds and you don’t feel like ever seeing another crochet hook again?
Did you buy a bunch of wool and then realize it’s a colour you don’t care for?
Are you riddled with guilt over the embroidery you haven’t completed, but have a passion for knitting and fly through those projects?
Would you like to try a new craft, but don’t want to invest loads of money if you’re not sure it’s your “thing”?
If any of these sound familiar, then join us on Monday, 14 October, for Granny Green’s first-ever Craft Swap Shop.
We’re very excited to try something new, and we hope you will be, too.
Here’s how the Swap Shop will work:
– Meet at Central Hall in Tolcross at our regular time on Monday, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
– Bring along any unfinished projects or kits, fabric, wool, crafting supplies, or tools that you don’t want around the house anymore.
– Relax and enjoy some yummy treats while chatting and crafting. Bring along whatever project you have going.
– After everyone has had a chance to arrive, browse the tables for something new to work on, or for some needed supplies.
– Everything will be FREE.  We only ask that you try to not to snatch up a bunch if others haven’t had an opportunity to choose something.
– Any non-claimed supplies or projects can either be taken home by the person who brought them, or will be donated to a charity.
It will be a fun Big Night Out for all.  What more could you want for a Monday night?  Crafting, chatting, free stuff, cake, and potentially clearing out a little space in your closet?
Hope to see you there!

      Hi Ying
      You don’t have to sign up – just turn up with whatever project you are working on. We meet every Monday in the Red Squirrel pub on Lothian Road (near the west end) from 6-8pm. SOmetimes, if we’re running a workshop, we meet at Central Hall at Tollcross, but we’ll give you plenty of notice about those evenings.
      Look forward to seeing you soon.
