…now that I’m a retailer I understand why Christmas starts to appear earlier than seems necessary! And it is only 45 days away…it’s not as though I’m mentioning it in September or anything.
And all I want to do is tell you about a craft session that’s happening at the Tree House on Saturday 7 December (when Christmas will only be two and a half weeks away!). Embroiderer extraordinaire Vicki Mansfield will be offering the chance to make embroidered Christmas decorations, as well as selling her own embroidery charts and cross stitch kits. She specialises in a wonderful and intricate form of embroidery called hardanger, but the decorations are quite simple to make – though she suggests an age of 8+ because of the level of concentration and skill required. The sessions are £5, and will last about two hours – you can just drop in on the day from 10am.
