knitwits stall

Knitwits at Langside Library are having a Christmas Craft sale tomorrow at the library from 4 -6 pm. The last one in September raised a generous amount of money for MacMillan Cancer and they hope to do the same at this sale.

Pop in tomorrow for some lovely craft fayre or join the Knitwits in the new year to socialise while cracking on with those knitting and crochet projects!

Well it’s not been quite a year since the last post but is has definitely not been recent. That doesn’t mean that scattercraft has been quiet. If you have been following us on Twitter and Facebook you will see that weekly meetups with Knitwits at Langside Library and a new little meetup at the Clockwork Beer Company have been happening on Tuesday evenings. A few eager beaver parents have been working on an after school craft club and this has been going since about last September in CARCAP with great stuff for school events and just for fun at events in the school.

The latest project at the CraftClub has been with Rags to Riches and the children (and parents) have been learning about recycling and design. This fab new work will be installed in the school playground at the end of the month and is part of a much bigger scheme that the parents, children and staff have been working on to redevelop the space. As part of this we currently are looking for as many votes as possible on the AVIVA Community Fund in order to win £25,000 towards major work to convert the playground from a bare tarmac surface into a play space that inspires and allows all of our children opportunities to be creative through play. PLEASE VOTE FOR US IF YOU CAN.

And on a final note.

The Mount Florida Parent Partnership are up for an Education Scotland Award for Parents involved in Learning. We are down to the final 3 so will let you know how we do at the Awards Ceremony on 10 June – wish us luck!!!!.

Here are some snaps of work coming together for the craftbomb later this month. Actually it feels weird to say later this month as that means the project we have been talking about for ages is imminent!!!

Some fantastic work being donated and created at workshops and looking forward to seeing it all up around Mount Florida for the Games.
