My name is Charlotte, and I have been knitting, crocheting, embroidering and sewing for over 25 years. After knitting a pair of fingerless mittens many years ago, to keep my hands warm when typing in a stupidly cold office, I found them so invaluable, I started knitting them in different yarns and colours, invented new designs, and found them useful in so many different situations.
I made them for friends as gifts, and people would often comment that they couldn't believe they were home-made. When I became a full-time mother some years ago, I started knitting and crocheting blankets, baby clothes, jumpers and toys for my son, and I loved it so much, I wanted to spend much more time on it.
Steventon WI Craft Fair
Venue: Steventon Village Hall
Date: Saturday 8 October
Time: 10.30am - 4pm
I will be joined by Sally Cooper, who will be contributing some of her fab creations to the stall.
We will both be crafting at the stall all day - crocheting, knitting and tatting - so if you fancy coming for a look or a chat, it would be lovely to see you. If you are a crafter yourself, and would like any help with a project, please bring it along, and we will happily offer help and advice.
