This year in Coventry we had the opportunity to make some beautiful Chrismas gifts and crafts. The options included –
Cranberry hearts – using green 1.6mm garden wire in a heart shape, threaded with fresh firm cranberry berries then finished off with ribbon and rafia.
Fabric Remnant hand sewn postcards – Claire showed us how to make beautiful cards using strips of coordinating fabric laid over each other and sewn toegther using various stitches.
Sweetie wreath – Fiona demonstrated a simple yet effective Christmas gift of a wreath made up of quality street chocolates, held together in a circular shape with thin green garden wire and finished off with ribbon.
Julia helped ladies to make beautiful jewellery using some of the fine beads from her Achkiy products, sourced in Peru. Look out for a website link soon to the new Achkiy website.
