May Day Meet & Mend

Our next MeetUp falls on May 1st so in honour of Workers’ Day and in the spirit of renewal and revolution there will be a mending theme to this one.

If you’ve got a pile of mending but just don’t fancy staying at home with your sewing kit, well, you don’t have to! Bring some of it along and join us in ¬†giving those old items a springtime revamp.

Of course if you are all caught up on your clothes repairs just bring whatever you’re working on (or just yourself!)

Ferbruary Crafty MeetUp

With the sad closure Tea Tree Tea we’ve been on the lookout for a new home for our monthly meetups where we have a blether while working on them projects that fit in our bag. Lots of ideas were thrown about, some fine cafes were visited and we think we’ve got a good one for you. And for those of you who plan ahead you should also know that we’ve moved our regular date to every first Tuesday of the month.

We welcome all makers, from those those trying to make a living off their passion to anyone with an interest in creative crafting. We simply want to provide a place to exchange ideas, knowledge and skills while consuming respectable amounts of local delicacies.

So, our next meetup will be on the 7th of February at Hula Juice Bar, a lovely cafe on West Bow serving yummy smoothies, Artisan Roast coffee and all-day lunch. We’ll be crafting and chatting away from 5:30 to 7:30 and we hope to see many of you there!

A good way to start the month

It looks to be a busy couple of weeks ahead for Craft Reactor & members…

Our usual monthly meet will be this Tuesday 26th at Tea Tree Tea from 5pm to 8pm. Bring any crafts you are working on along for everyone to have a peek!

To start you off on early holiday shopping (and some old-fashioned entertainment), Sunday, November 7th, brings two lovely events:

We are very excited about the brand new Craft Market at Earthy where we shall have a group stall along with a whole bunch of lovely people. Entry is free so you can have your coffee and cake, do your grocery shopping and pick up some lovely handcrafted goods, all in one fell swoop. If it’s a good day you can even have a wee mosey and browse the garden plants.

Miss Fitz-Poste’s Modern Mixers” provide the Bright Young Things of Edinburgh with the most respectable of monthly tea dances each with a different vintage theme. This month’s Blitz Balroom is on from 4-8pm at the Ghillie Dhu and will include “blackmarket goods” from our members Dress up doll, Queen Bea and Blackbird Alley.

Also, stay tuned for our Christmas workshop details and our members exhibition!

Have a lovely, crafty week!
