BOSCASTLE Craft Circle has been busier than ever through 2016.
They moved their regular meeting place from Trevalga to Otterham & St Juliot hall where they meet on the first and third Tuesday each month from 10am-2pm.
They are a very small, informal group who enjoy the company of other crafter’s, coffee, chat and lots of laughter, helping and inspiring each other.
Regrettably, regular member, Brian Wilson, husband of Teresa, was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in January this year.
So the craft circle decided to help in the only way they know, by getting out their needles and threads to make a quilt.
Fabric was chosen, design agreed, then it was all hands on deck to get the quilt finished as soon as possible to raise funds for Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA).
Sadly Brian died in March before the quilt was completely finished.
However, tickets were printed for a draw to win the finished quilt and members set about selling them as often as possible at big gatherings.
Launceston Show, Sticker Steam Fair, Tesco Launceston, and Boscastle were all ‘manned’ by Boscastle Craft Circle members to sell tickets.
Then in a final burst, a coffee morning with a raffle, sales table of delicious homemade cakes and produce, and craft items to buy, culminated in making the draw for the quilt.
Jerry Williams from Newent in Gloucestershire was the lucky winner.
Members extended thanks to everyone who supported their endeavours and helped to raise the magnificent sum of £1,345.05 and for MNDA.
Prospective new members are always welcome to visit before committing themselves to join.
