Your host: Lesley Grant

I’ve been a member of Pimm’s and Needles since the beginning of the Newton Aycliffe group.  I loved it straight away. Being able to try lots of different skills and crafts with positive, like-minded people was just a new and lovely experience and I love being part of this community.  I enjoy all crafts such as sewing, knitting, drawing, painting, photography, in fact I’m happy to have a go at anything!  I can’t wait for all the classes to begin again and see you all there!

Our Meetings for the next few months

September – Whether you have not drawn since school or like to sketch, out life drawing session is not only lots of fun (an giggles) but everyone amazes themselves with what they can produce during the session, hosted by Bernadette Koranteng Art Workshops.

October – We’re super excited to be offering a Fused Glass Workshop with the wonderful Sue from Glassic, this is something that has been requested so many times and we are so pleased to be finally able to offer it. You will be able to collect your work at the November meeting once it has been fired.

November – Our Door Wreath workshop with Ravensworth Nurseries is one of the most popular sessions of the year, everything is provided, you just need to bring some gloves as the holly can be prickly!

December – We’ll be getting into the Christmas spirit with some Christmas crafting!

January – Diets will be out of the window as we will be doing something fun and tasty with Buttercream – Cakes by Emma Pearson.
