During our recent crafty Cruise we encouraged ladies to bring their own crafts to our classes. This was a great success and we had ladies who crochet, knitters and cross stitchers. We enjoyed the variety and their company.
There was a young girl recovering from an accident who whilst not able to work, had taught herself to crochet. It was good to watch her progress and help her where we could.
The age range of participants was unexpected and a great bonus. We had one elderly lady who had really bad arthritis in her hands. She decided to make herself a mobile phone case, which was her design. We watched with bated breath as she stitched slowly. Her hands were so painful that she had to keep stopping to rest them. She was delighted with the end product and we were delighted to see her success.
There was a lady who was knitting a foxy scarf and another who was knitting animals (just seen in the picture.) Everyone had a great time and I can’t wait to do it all again!
