Upcoming Crafty Meet-ups

We have finally emerged out from under the duvet, shaken off them January blues and made some plans!

Our meet-ups for the next few months have been booked for the last Tuesday of every month at the lovely Tea Tree Tea on Bread Street and we expect to see all of you there. And if you’re anything like me (slighlty challenged with a calendar that is) those Tuesdays are:

February 22nd
March 29th
April 26th
May 31st

Other events are also brewing but we let you know about them when we’ve replished our energies with a bit more cake…
