High Halden Craft Club

High Halden Craft Club The High Halden craft club was started 6 years ago by Brenda Giles and Margaret Parker . It is a place where like-minded crafters come together in a pleasant environment to ‘create’ and have a fun and sociable time together.

Admission fee:
£3.50 per Adult session

There are now about 20 regular members of all ages ranging from 10 years old to 75 + and several members who pop in when work commitments allow. Children are welcome in school holidays accompanied by an adult.

We share ideas and projects and have alternate structured weeks and play weeks.

Structured weeks
On a structured we work together on a project, however  you may also work on your own crafting project if you wish.  

Play weeks
On a play week there is card, paper, and embellishments.  Ribbon, gems promarkers, inks & stamps, die cutting machines and many other items avaliable for your use.

Margaret and Brenda are always on hand to give advice with your chosen projects, so come  on all you Knitters,  join us for a knit and natter, we don’t just make cards!!

Lace makers why not bring in your pillows!!
Budding artists come and paint!

No need to worry about what to bring, just come along, as we have some spare items of essential equipment for your first few visits until you are sure you want to invest in your own, once you get hooked.

  1. If anyone in your craft group is interested.

    28th-29th February Knit-a-thon, Little Chart Church
    Raise money and make blankets for the Ashford Winter Night Shelter. There will be full programme of activities, classes and demonstrations for all ages and abilities from 12noon on Friday 28th to 12noon on Saturday 29th Feb.  If you can’t knit or crochet then come along and learn. Come for an hour or so or get sponsorship for the full 24hours (either individually or as part of a tag team between friends or as a family).  Get sponsorship per hour or per square.

    All activities, classes and refreshments are FREE. We will be collecting donations for the Ashford Winter Night Shelter.

    Staying for the whole 24 hours? Food and refreshments provided, just bring a sleeping bag if you are in a team or family and want a few hours sleep.

    We will also need donations of yarn (synthetic is best as it is washable) so hunt in the cupboards for those odds and ends that you have been meaning to use up for years.  If you are able to donate wool then please contact Megan on austinchief@live.co.uk or leave it in the donations box outside the church.
    See our web-page, https://www.calehill-westwell.uk/cornerstone for a full programme of activities and sponsorship forms.

    Kind regards,
