of the Third Age,
The Needlecraft Group was hosted by Jean Wilde at her home in Talybont.
Our Needlecraft Group has now been discontinued, since, as many of you will know, Jean has moved to Llandudno.
We wish her every happiness in her new home and thank her for running Needlecraft.
We have enjoyed her showing us her skills and passing some of them on to us.
Thank you, Jean, so very much - you will be greatly missed.
"I now look forward to alternate Mondays with great anticipation.
It is the day my like-minded friends bring their handicrafts (crochet, embroidery, quilting, etc.) to my house, and we enjoy learning from each other, and having a good gossip. Long may it continue!" (Jean Wilde)
A Sewer's Poem - by Jean Wilde
Oh! What a joy! What a delight! Skeins of yarn, colours bright, Waiting to start, but not with a knot, For someone who really loves sewing a lot, Thread the needle, then chain, And the pattern can start Far better than "Valium" to quieten the heart. For what better pill in all the world Is a pattern and skein of yarn unfurled? As you patchwork, or cross stitch, or hardanger too To create a new project, to keep for you, All tensions unwind with the silk on the ball Who cares if you don't get to 'hoover' the hall? Just get that work going and enjoy a good rest Housework's a pain, even at best. When the project is finished, be it bedspread or doll Then you can finish the washing, and hoover the hall. We hope when we die, and go up above And rest there forever, enjoying His Love, There'll be a big box, all filled up with yarn And a soft cloud to hold me, free from harm We'll float there forever just stitching away ...........and give thanks for each heavenly day.

We are all still alive though our numbers have dwindled. So many members who learned to crochet now practise at home. But Wendy, who two years ago didn't even own a crochet hook, has completed a beautiful throw.
If you wish to know more about cutwork, bargello, needlework, patchwork, hardanger or any other craft, come and join us. There is always someone who knows how.
Pictures of some of our work can be seen in the Photo Gallery.
