Craft at Old Bar resumes on Wednesday, February 6 at the Soldiers’ Memorial Hall, Hall Street, Old Bar, 11am – 2pm.

The group’s workshop is combat cards and the updated news is that the group will make Mothers’ Day fan cards using Geraldine’s creative kite pattern. 

To participate in the workshop you will need floral or patterned paper, two pieces of matching card, small piece of black card, thin ribbon for two bows, small amount of lace about ½” x 12”,  Mothers’ Day stickers, set square and protractor, sharp lead pencil, sharp scissors, double-sided tape. 

There is always the option to make simpler cards. They will still be very much appreciated by our servicemen and women overseas unable to purchase cards to send home. Alternatively, bring along the craft you are currently working on or do nothing, just enjoy yourself and chat to friends. Don’t forget to bring your lunch, tea and coffee supplied. 

All ladies are most welcome.

More information available from 6553 2500 or 0415 785 608.
