Glitter makes Everything BETTER

October 22, 2019

Coleraine's newest cafe; The Catching Pen, proved to be the perfect spot for our afternoon of sewing for our lovely relaxed Scrunchie Crafternoon. Hayley made us feel very at home as we took over the half of the cafe used as a community space, nestled in with great tunes and delicious hot drinks, platters of homemade slices and copious crafty materials!

The lovely ladies who joined us picked out their favourite fabrics, hand-stitched their first scrunchie over relaxed chatter, then learnt how to make the pattern for, cut and sew different types of bows. We took things up a notch for other scrunchies, using sewing machines to wizz through them like a happy little sweat shop fuelled by chai lattes and brownies.

The creations made were simply lovely - from crushed velvet and silk to cotton and organza filled with sparkles, they were as unique as the ladies who stitched them. We used a lot of recycled material from vintage dresses, pre-loved clothing and bed-linen, plus some new fabric and u...

We're thrilled to finally be learning the art of basket weaving on Sunday 27th November with multi-talented local lady, Helen Henry.

We'll gather in the garden of her mud-brick home in Hamilton and begin with morning tea and cake at 10am, then settle down to make miniature woven vessels that can be used as catch-all dishes or little decorative bowls.

We'll learn how to harvest and prepare certain vines and grasses for weaving, how to up-cycle fabric for weaving and how to use a coiling technique to build these little cuties. I'm told the craft is simple and easy to learn- suitable for absolute beginners from teenage to silver years.

In this workshop you will meet creative local people, use your hands to create something from scratch and learn a sustainable new craft that has been practiced for thousands of years. It's relaxing, therapeutic and good for the soul- a perfect way to start your Sunday!

The workshop costs $30 including all t...

That's right ladies and gents, the next Crafty Workshop in Hamilton will be a nice cosy one upstairs in The Roxburgh, where we will make these ADORABLE little hand-held hotties infront of a roaring open fire.


Filled with subtly-scented grain and made with love, give these cuties a blast in the microwave before heading out for pockets full of warmth. Even between uses they'll look irrisistably cute and remind you of the fun you had hand-stitching them, making you feel warm and fuzzy inside anyway! Wise little owls aren't they?


The Details: Thursday 30th July, from 6.30pm, $30 including wood-fired pizzas, all materials and crafty tuition :)


Places are quite limited so if you fancy tasting some of The Roxburgh's famous wood-fired pizza, enjoying friendly chatter with some other creative people and learning some basic hand-stitching techniques, then you'll leave with at least one little hand warmer (hopefully we'll have time for a pair), some new found friends and a smile on your...
