Christmas in Summer

This years Pittenweem Arts Festival Community Craft project has gone all festive!

Knit, crochet or sew anything Christmassy.

Tree and table decorations, stockings and advent calenders...  how about a festive cushion or tea cosy?

Items made and donated will be displayed and sold during the Pittenweem Arts Festival in aid of charity (usually 2!)

For some ideas, check out Anne-Marijke's Pinterest board and we have our own Jingle Bells board too.

Our what about a quick search on Ravelry.

As usual you are invited to the get togethers in the shop - get some inspiration, share ideas and stash and chat with fellow crafters.

But don't worry if you can't get along... you can join in here on the website and on Facebook and we're happy to accept your items and pass them on to Anne-Marijke!
