Having nimble fingers and an active mind are just two benefits of making cards at Long Sutton Craft Group.
It’s also an opportunity to pick up new skills as members are only too happy to pass on tips.
Denise Jupp said most make cards, using a variety of skills such as decoupage, needlework and beading.
She said: “Some of the ladies sell their cards while others give them to friends and relatives on their birthdays.”
Just for a change sometimes members will switch to other crafts, like quilting.
The craft group has been going for around a dozen years and the Wednesday weekly sessions attract around ten-12 members.
Denise says: “As you start getting older, your hands become stiff – this keeps your hands moving and it keeps your mind active as well.
“We enjoy a good old chatter.”
The craft group would like to welcome more people to the 9.30am-12.30pm sessions. Anyone interested can enquire at Market House.
