CALLING ALL CRAFTERS 
Do you knit, sew or crochet?  Do you work with crafty people?  Do you have a church craft group?  Could you make a piece of bunting?

The Presbytery would like to create some bunting for our Praise in the Park event on Saturday 14th April (to which we are all welcome) and other occassions and is looking for between two and ten triangles from each congregation if possible.

Your bunting can be made with either fabric or yarn - the only stipulations are:

  • It should be the size of the template (7" along the top and 8.5" from top edge to tip)
  • Your congregation name should be included as part of the design
  • Completed bunting pieces should be sent to Linda Walker at the Presbetery Office

If you are willing to assist with the putting together,  please include your name and either a phone number and email address

Looking forward to seeing your Crafty Creation.

Linda Walker

 

The link below has a template for you to print off and use for each triangle.  There will also be some printed on card available from the Church from Sunday 11 March, 2018

 

If you get the finished triangles to Joan Rankin,  by Sunday 8 April, 2018, she will collect them and take them to Linda Walker.
