A leaflet has just come through the door advertising the start of a weekly sewing bee in the village. I've been thinking about joining one of these as a way of getting to meet some different people but the ones I have seen have either been daytime or too far away.
I have no excuse with this one as it is to be held in the village hall which is about five minutes walk from my home. It will be on a Tuesday evening, so it doesn't clash with anything else I have planned and it is only £3 a time so is not too expensive.
In the past I haven't really been a clubby sort of person, but ... my life is different now and this is an easy and cheap alternative to sitting at home alone and will be doing something I enjoy. So I'm going to give it a try. Two things helped me make up my mind. Firstly, the sewing bee is called 'Dufflebobble Crafts' which is such a brilliant name and secondly, on the leaflet they ask 'do you quilt, embroider, dress-make or upcycle your PJs or do you create masterpieces with knickers?' - I just have to go to see if anyone does actually create masterpieces with knickers! Sorry, strange sense of humour, I know. Also, there is a mention of cake!!
It starts next week so between now and then I have to sort out a project to take. I don't want to take my sewing machine so am looking for a hand sewing project and one that is easy to carry around. Any ideas?
