Sewing on the web – craft making a comeback

February 9, 2016



hens at play

The Menders are a creative bunch and we’re always in a crafty frame of mind. That’s why we love our craft parties where we can share all the wonderful things that come from being creative!

This week on the web was a case in point. So many good things around to make us feel that being a bit clever with needle and thread can be the way to overcome the February blues.

Cross-stitch is massively popular with many of our party guests and, even if you’re not massively creative, it is an activity that can calm the stressed soul. Notforgotten Farm┬áreally captures the love and the Etsy shop has so many fabulous kits that I think would be lovely to complete,
