Kiri Cottage Craft Club 16th January 2024

This afternoon we worked with peg looms, to create sample rag rugs. Really quick, easy and effective way to do produce pretty rugs with the added advantage  of recycling old clothes, curtains, bed linen and any other scraps of materials in your stash!

Kiri Cottage Craft Club 10th January 2024

Great fun today with two lovely ladies, who thought they were coming for a therapeutic, social, craft day, and both learned to spin. And we developed knitting skills in the afternoon, mastering plain, purl and rib.

Kiri Cottage Crafts Club 21st November

We had a lovely, creative evening at the craft club today.

Karen furthered her spinning skills and learned to ply wool.

Margaret and Miriam brought their knitting – both producing small items for charity sales.

Jill brought crochet hooks and started on Granny squares.

I had some Valois black nose fleece that I had washed and dyed, ready to be carded and spun for a client. I was able to finish carding, and spun most of it. I will finish spinning it tomorrow.

Next open house craft club will be Thursday 7 December, 10am to 1pm. Tea, coffee and buns on tap. No charge just a voluntary spare change contribution to Equine Halfway House Rescue and Refuge, based in Lisburn.

Future dates:

Thursday 7 December, 10am – 1pm

Tuesday 19 December 6 – 9pm

Thursday 4 January 10am – 1pm

Look forward to seeing you!

Kiri Cottage Crafts Club 9th November Meeting Photos

Kiri Cottage Crafts Club met for the second time on Thursday morning, 9 November.

As the nights are dark and the weather is not great, we are alternating fortnightly meetings between a Tuesday evening and Thursday morning.

We had a great mix of crafts – I have a pile of alpaca to spin so it was great to have 3 hours just to sit, spin, chat and eat cake.

Karen got the time to almost finish the binding on her beautiful latch rug (and the incentive to take it home to finish the last wee bit!).

Sharon is weaving a picture on a weaving frame – an interpretation of a painting of a view very close to where we were.

Susan let us see how to use a 3D printer and brought along some great Christmas decorations that she made on it (and got first prize for that evening at her local WI competition!)

Next get together is Tuesday 21 November 6-9pm. Coffee and buns will be available, as always!

Kiri Cottage Crafts Club 9th November Meeting

Kiri Cottage Crafts Club 17 October 2023 8

This evening was the first get together of the Kiri Cottage Craft Club. A small but select group of 5 crafters crocheted, embroidered and spun, shared stories and craic, coffee and cake.

We agreed that the club would meet one evening and one morning a month, as especially coming into the dark evenings, not everyone wants to venture out.
