Diary date – coffee time – Saturday 5 July – crafty items needed

Put this date in your diaries and bring along family and friends.  Our major fund raising even this year will be on Saturday 5 July 2014 in the Market Harborough Theatre Lounge.

In the meantime, if you have a crafty hobby and would like to while away these dark winter days and evenings making items to donate to sell, then get going now.  Whilst we hope members will donate items, small amounts of expenses for materials can be reimbursed.

So whatever your hobby, get knitting, sewing, crocheting, card making or whatever your skill, now!
