    Ayrshire Craft Fair

    I went to Troon the other weekend to have a look at the Ayrshire Arts & Craft Fair. It’s said to be the biggest monthly indoor craft event, held usually on the first Saturday of the month in the Concert Hall. There were a lot of stalls there so I did my usual trick of grabbing business cards to browse at home. I thought I’d record the details of the stall holders here, firstly to have a record and secondly in case anyone else is interested.

    I realised (about halfway through February) that one way to make sure I posted regularly would be to do a monthly update on projects. So following my tradition of good intentions not being followed through I’m starting with a 2 month post.

    2018 Review

    It’s the 10th January already? I guess I’m not that late for my year end review. 2018 was the first year in which I’ve sat down, wrote and published targets on how I wanted to take Ceefer Crafts. I guess ingrained Performance Officer habits are hard to break no matter how hard I try

    Following my to do list in the previous post, it was nice to have my Residential Home classes confirmed this morning for the rest of the year. I enjoy doing them and it is good to hear positive feedback from both the residents and staff.

    Bit of fundraising

    This month I started running craft sessions at number of local care homes as a result I have 9 example pieces left over.┬áSo that I don’t end up over run with these every month, I’ve decided to sell them to raise money for the┬áMasato Beanies┬áhomeless fund. For each one sold I will donate ┬ú1 to the fund and if I clear all 9 will round it up to ┬ú10.
