Our Crafternoon tea went with a swing on Sunday 13 September and whilst enjoying ourselves crafting and consuming a delicious afternoon tea we managed to raise a staggering £950.00 for the Brick Children School in Nepal.
It was an early start with the Crafternoon tea fairies preparing the sandwiches and crafts and decorating the hall.
But, by 1.30pm when the crafters started to arrive all was looking lovely and the atmosphere was calm.
There were a variety of crafts to choose from – some easy and others that took a little time, such as the dream catcher…,
…. but they did look wonderful when they were finished.
The little Christmas angel looked cute – and Corinne, Keris and Hillary seem to be estremely happy with their efforts.
And Caroline and Fiona created little Christmas peg dollies for their festive trees….
the most popluar craft of all though was the Christmas wreath
Though some thought it might be better utilised as a halo!
A great time was had by all and the army of helpers went home happy that they had raised a few smiles and an awful lot of money!
We would like to thank everyone who supported our event – the helpers (including husbands), those who participated and those who gave various donations (including the local cycle team who dropped by on their travels). Raising £950.00 would not have been possible without you so…. THANK YOU!!!!
Thank you for a lovely tea and congratulations on the staggering amount collected. All your hard work was certainly worth while. Ann
Well done for all your hard work and organisation and for the end result. Deedi
Congratulations on raising a terrific amount of money yesterday, it was a great afternoon. Thanks for all your hard work ( & to your helpers ). Keris
What a fantastic result – well done! Helen
It so wonderful the amount of money raised, and I love the way we all worked together
to help Hilary and Monica to do this for such a good cause. I’ve made some lovely friends in Cutting Edge and I feel very blessed to be part of this lovely group of ladies. Sandra
A fabulously organised and fun afternoon for a brilliant cause – thank you to all who worked to make it happen. Caroline
An amazing amount you made on Sunday and it was such fun. Jan

Today Cowbridge Stitch and Bitchers got together with Cutting Edge members and St Hilary locals to raise money for the Brick Children School in Nepal. The event was held in Monica’s garden in St Hilary.
It was touch and go whether the weather would hold out for the event – after some wonderful sunny days it was forecast to rain? Thankfully, the rain didn’t arrive until after the event and everyone had time to catch up and eat cake in the garden.
Friends from the village and further afield came to enjoy the morning and very generously gave to raise funds for the Brick Children School in Nepal. £635.00 was raised in total.
Many thanks to everyone who gave their support either by attending, donating funds or cakes, which all helped to make the morningsuch a success!
After a hectic time planning and running the Festive Coffee Morning & Craft Sale the Cowbridge Stitch and Bitchers found time for some R&R at their recent Christas meal.
And, everyone was thrilled that Seamus made a guest appearnace – he hasn’t been around since his epic journary around the world earlier this year with Angus. He looked a little glum to start with..
but soon got into the swing of things with a little encouragement from Deedi. She just couldn’t wait to show him the gift of socks she received from Secret Santa.
And Jess was thrilled when she opened her present – commenting that turquoise was one of her favourite colours.
She was even more pleased when she relaised that she had a second gift to open which was much more her taste.
Desserts fiollowed, which looked and tasted delicious even if some were still a little frozen. But, ever resourceful Jenny managed to remedy the problem with her pavlova by placing it over the tea light for a bit of warmth!
All in all, a good time was had by all and we’re looking forward to next year already! Merry Christmas everyone.
Today, we held our Festive Fundraising Coffee Morning and Craft Sale in Cowbridge and as is the norm there was concern that we might not get enough people through the door to match the funds that we raised last year.But, thanks to the genorosity of friends, family and local shoppers we exceeded our expectations and raised a staggering £1,024.50!
We did have a dazzling array of goodies on offer.
Along with a tombola stall…
delicous home made chocolates and biscotti
Phoenix Cards, Valerie Chcken products and delicious spicy food produce.
Plus, watch out Deedi – we have a new model…. Fiona spent the afternoon selling knitted items and found she was far more successful when she modelled them!
Of course we musn’t forget our wonderful kitchen angels who beacered away in the background to provide tea, coffee and home made cakes.
A very satisfying result. All the proceeds raised will be donated to the British Heart Foundation in memory of our dear friend Pam – she would be proud!
Only one day to go and it will be the Festive Coffee Morning and Craft Sale in the Lesser Hall Cowbridge. So, as is the tradition, the group met to to price the goodies.
It is always an entertaining afternoon trying to get agreement about how much things should be – what a dilemma.
And whilst this debate was going on some were keeping their heads down and minding their own business!
And others were beavering away in the background.
A busy but fun afternoon with great expectations that we will sell everything on the day!
