There has been a lot of creativity in the craft club, it seems this month's project has sparked off other projects. I love seeing how the confidence of some member's has grown since the beginning of the year. It's not too late to come and join in, find out all the details and book your place here.
This is what I was talking about when I said about confidence growing. From not knowing much about sewing at the beginning of the year, Ann has now taken inspiration from this month's project and gone out and made herself a wonderful cushion. She's made a fantastic job of the quilting making for a very professional finish.

There are so many different sewing machines out there and they all have their own little quirks. When it comes to tension issues, it's quite often a problem with the threading or the loading of the bobbin. I have two machines and it's taken me some time to work out the problem with one of mine. When all else fails, check the instructions. If you don't have the book, look online, most are now available online. Just one small detail can make all the difference as you will see in this week's video.
Do you enjoy fine crochet? Hobbycraft have a new Anchor range of crochet cottons available online with some free patterns available for download. If you're looking for a desk tidy with lamp combined, the Ottlite is half price. Unfortunately, it wouln't work on my desk or else I might be tempted.
Deramores have a 30% off yarn offer on until tomorrow night. Do check the exclusions as it doesn't cover every range. You need to use the code 30YARN.
I can't see the closing date, but Wise Badger have a 10% discount on their Aran yarns which means some yarns will be 35% cheaper the RRP. Use the code ARAN10.
