Craft Club

The Chinley Craft Club meets on Tuesday afternoons from 1.30pm to 4pm and on Wednesdays 7pm to 9pm in  the Community Centre quiet room.

This fun and friendly group meet to share skills and learn from each other.

Anyone is welcome to join the Group no matter what level of skill you have.  We put £1 in the ‘pot’ each week to buy any materials we need and keep the tea and biscuit fund topped up. We also  pay the Community Association for the use of the room.  When we have enough funds  we ask an outside speaker to come to tell us about their work or to show us a new skill.

Some of the group have been to day workshops to learn ,or refresh their skills. Patchwork, gold work, stump work and crewel work are recent workshops.

We have had outings to Chatsworth, Knit and Stitch Shows and locally to Patchwork Shows in Buxton and Embroidery in Glossop.

Some of the group are also members of the Embroidery Guild and go regularly to the meetings in Glossop which take place on the first Wednesday of the month at Glossop Cricket Club.
