BSL Craft Club
Hello, my name is Sunnie and I am the chair person for the Original Wolverhampton BSL craft club. This is just to let you know that we have a new launch for new BSL craft group for the next generation to pass over skills that we have learned to the new generation. I am supported in doing this by Zebra Access who have set up this group to get the ball rolling.
It will be starting on 10th April 2018 at the Bob jones Hub in Blakenhall, Wolverhampton. It would be lovely if you could all come for 9.30 in the morning, after the school run if you have children. The launch will start at 10am and there will be a ribbon cutting to unveil the session. We will be having a small launch party with hot drinks and nibbles to give to you all. You must make sure you're looking your best as there will be photos taken. We will show you what will be available to you from the original craft club such as sewing machines, sewing, fabric to show you what you could use in the future.
This be held regularly every second Tuesday of the month from 10 - 2. Bring your knitting, crochet, cross-stitch or sewing it will be interesting to see what everyone can do. I will be there to guide you and to show you the ropes. It will be £3 entry and this cost is to cover the set up, support and hire of the room as well as storage. Our original group didn't have storage to we had to lug things from place to place which was tiring every month. Storage means it can be kept there and locked away safely and when you come every month you can just unpack onto the table. It's a big room with two tables in the room, one for sewing and one for knitting and relaxing. We will provide hot drinks and biscuits etc. The address will be shown underneath the video.
