This week is going to be a bit of a quieter one for Lev3l 3 Crafters. As you may already know our home base is The Venue, in Manor Walks, Cramlington. The Venue is a shop unit that is used as a community hub and from Monday to Friday this week it is being used to house an art exhibition. Which means that we won't be in there either on Monday or Thursday this week for our usual free weekly skills demo days. A well earned rest for our quilt lady, who does every Thursday without fail!
Saturday will be our normal weekly market day though. We will be there between 9.30am and 5.00pm with a selection of handcrafted gifts, cards and gluten free food.
Here's a sneak peak of what you might find on Saturday.
Feedback from last week
On Monday Roger from Far Horizons was our crafter in residence, demonstrating how he makes the picture mounts before framing his beautiful photographs. He had some brand new photographs with him too - taken during his recent visit to the Farne Islands.
On Thursday Sheila from Sewing MANIA was there all day demonstrating "Delectable Mountains" - this is a type of pattern used in quilting.
On Friday we had our second mums/baby and toddler craft market
On Saturday we had our normal weekly craft market - always an enjoyable event!
In addition to the craft market on Saturday we held a Krafty Kidz session in the central mall at Manor Walks, in conjunction with their "Foodie Festival". The kids who attended enjoyed it enormously and produced some lovely suncatchers and their very own beaded bracelets and keyrings.
July dates for your diary
Saturday 25 July - kids crafting upstairs in Lev3l3 as part of the Hands On British Sign Language Training Event
Monday 27 July - free skills demo day - painting and picture mounting and framing
And don't forget that there will also be a quilt exhibition in The Venue during August.
