Loving meeting people again

Classes began on 3rd January and I loived every minute of it. Thank you so much to those of you who came along. I'm sure more talking took place than crafting but thats what its all about. 

We made two birthday cards this time, nice and easy ones to make sure everyone was comfortable with the process. After a few years away this was a strrp learning curve for me too.

and then it was time for the first Scrapbook class on Saturday 6th January. Once again there was lots of chatter and it was fantastic to welcome every to class both old and new.

Two fairly easy layouts to start and there was plenty of time for everyone to work at their own pace. These are the two class examples.

If you would like to craft with like minded people then come and join us. Places are limited so you might not get a place straight away but there are classes planned all year so you will get a turn.

Information can be found in the post below or you can leave a comment and I will send more information.

Face to face classes take place in Chatham, Kent but I also teach online classes for those of you father a field.

I'll be back on here soon with details of The Circle workshop. Make sure you follow to get notified first.
Have a great day

Time to go back to face to face classes

As those of you who follow me know I have been teaching classes online ever since the Covid outbreak started and it has been great fun however I really miss the chats and laughter of face to face classes so its time to make a change.

From 1st January 2024 I will be teaching one Card Class and one Scrapbooking Class each month on St Marys Island, Chatham, Kent. They will take place in The Crew Room near the basin and will be bookable from 30th November.

Card Classes will be £12.50 per session (2 1/2 hours) and will include a full kit, tuition, tea/coffee and cake or biscuits.

The first class will be on Wednesday 3rd January 2024 10am to 12.30pm

During the class you will learn to make two birthday cards using your kit. Please bring basic craft supplies with you ie cutter/scissors, glue etc

These classes are suitable for both beginners and experienced crafters and if this is the first time you have made cards then there will be plenty of craft tools for you to use during the class.

Scrapbook Classes will be £13.50 per session (3 hours) and will include a full kit, tuition, tea/coffee and cake or biscuits

The first class will be on Saturday 6th January from 10am to 1pm

During the class you will be taught two 8" x 8" scrapbook layouts (sometimes more depending on the difficulty of the projects) however the papers provided will be 12" x 12" so if you want to  make larger scrapbook pages you can.

These classes are suitable for both beginners and experienced crafters and if this is the first time you have made a scrapbook page there will be plenty of craft tools for you to use during the class.

Additional information

1.    Classes must be booked and paid for. Please do not turn up on the off chance as places are limited.

2.    Attending a class does not guarantee a place on the next class. This means everyone has a chance to attend a class at some point.

3.   A Facebook group will be set up so that I can let you know if you need to bring anything special with you on the day and to share pictures of the projects made in class. You do not have to join these groups if you dont want to.

4.   A small shop will be on site for anyone who wants it. I accept cash and card.

Finally just to let you know these classes are fun and ideal for meeting up and making new friends. I recently taught my first face to face class in New Romney and had an amazing day. 

Can't wait now for you to join me and have some fun. Tickets will be available soon but in the meantime follow ladiesthatcraft on Facebook and leave a comment or send a message if you prefer being contacted by email. Hope to see you soon

I need to update my blog more

 or so I've been telling myself for ages. Yes I'm back on here again after a long break but that doesn't mean i've been sitting around doing nothing. If you follow me on Facebook you will know that I have been teaching loads of classes online both during the Covid holidays lol and after. But enough of that la la la.

Here are a few of the projects we have been making to wet your appetite and I promise there will be loads more.

My classes begin every year and are taught using Facebook Live about twice a month. You can take place in the live classes or watch at a time suited to you. Details of the classes can be found in the link on the right hand side of this page.

I'll be back soon with more pictures of past projects. You can find my personal work on my blog New Nanny (link on the side bar). Have a great day xx

So what have I been up to?

 Since March and the arrival of the dreaded Covid-19 I have been teaching online and doing my best to keep everyone motivated and occupied. Card classes started almost immediately as the face to face classes stopped and they have been taking place once per week until last week. Here are just a few of the cards, tags and projects we have all had fun making together

Only a few of them but you get the idea and they were mostly taught live first on the ladiesthatcraft facebook page and then as Christmas grew nearer I opened a Christmas Crafts Group also on Faceebook to do tutorials for all of this years festive fun.

The new classes for 2021 will be launched this coming week on ladiesthatcraft Facebook Live and details will also be posted on here.

If you would like to see more pictures of our makes watch out for my facebook live for both the Cards and the scrapbooking examples I have done.

I hope you will all have a very Merry Christmas however you choose to celebrate and a virus free 2021. Lets hope we can all get on with our lives again when its safe to do so. Hugs xxx

MUG Class Update

HERE as a class and mini kit.
HERE as a class only
HERE as a class and full kit
(please read the descriptions carefully before purchasing)


Yes I have two addictions at the moment, the first is the amazing Pink Ink Design stamps and the second is MUGS.

I was at the crop at Crafty Friends The Oast at the end of February when I suddenly decided to see how hard it was to stamp on a mug. It took a bit of practise but it turned out great and I've been hooked ever since.

Here are the samples I have made for the class
which is being taught for the first time at Crafty Friends The Oast crop on Saturday 28th March.

I haven't shown the backs of the mugs yet so here are a few I have finished.

I am planning some more classes in April during the day so if you would like to have a go please message me using the link on the right of this page. 
Thank you for looking xx
