Hi, My name is Veronica and I’m a crafter

I love arts and crafts, and can mostly be found at my desk in my bedroom surrounded by pens, paper, inks, stamps etc. I make greeting cards, keep a journal, and love working in my anything goes books.

      Hi Veronica. It sounds as though you’re never bored!  I think if you have a passion for art, there is never any reason to be at a loss for something to do. I am a sculptor and I’ve done more work this year than ever before. Lockdowns have meant no distractions….just time in my studio.

      Hi, I’m Ellen and I live in Nottingham. it’s nice to meet other creative people. I have painted for years on and off and have recently given up work, so have more time to indulge in arts and crafts, but I’m finding it hard to get going again. I think I need a painting group but of course nothing is running at the moment. I have recently competed a couple of mosaics and a painting of a friend’s cat. I’d like to have a go at cards (previously I’ve painted snow scenes and had them printed as Christmas cards). I love making Christmas decorations and dressing the house for the festive season but things will be a little subdued this year. I also have a hankering to try a sculpture – but probably need to go on a course first.

        I am in two minds to decorate for Christmas as this year has been so downbeat. Also, I’m not sure I can afford Christmas this year.

        I like the idea of sculpting or pot making but I’d need somewhere to do it. My home isn’t really set up to have a space to do that unfortunately!

      Hi Veronica

      What do you craft? You don’t know how to knit by any chance, do you? I am keen to learn.

        Hi there are lots of really good videos on you tube that will help you learn to knit. I have learned to crochet this year in lockdown and finished a blanket that looks ok to me!

          Hi. I am trying to learn to crochet from YouTube videos. I am using Kate. Pollizzi. I have looked at others eg Bella Coco but didn’t get on with them as well. Which videos did you use and what would you recommend please. Thank you for any information

          I was going to ask the same question, Katie! I wanted a decent learn to crochet video but am unsure where to start

      Hiya, I’m also a crafter. I started with recycling Christmas cards, then got into designing stationary (weddings, funerals and other occasions). 18 months ago, I got hooked on making wine glass charms, then expanded into making key rings and handbag charms. Currently, I am making face masks. I’ve made around 200 so far! Who is your favourite craft expert?

        I don’t have a favorite as they are all an inspiration to me. But if I have to pick one it would be The Frugal Crafter, she really helps us who craft on a tight budget.

        Would you be interested in joining group craft where we could all craft our own thing and chat too? It would be online so every crafter is welcome and we would set a date and time to meet up in Messenger or What’s App, what do you think?

          Hiya. The only things I’m really making at the moment are face masks. I’m also pretty busy with work. But keep me in mind, and if you do set something up, maybe I’ll have a bit more time (hopefully!) after Christmas when I can join in x

      Hi I am Graham or on here Graham23 and enjoy art and craft and normally run a self help art group or that’s what I call it although I do step by step painting for some of the members to do now and again usually pastel or acrylics but of course at the moment we are probably looking at starting back at least Easter time

      Hi I used to do Diamond Painting but lately, my eyes are having problems seeing the symbols on the canvas and the options aren’t doing eye tests due to lockdown si I’ve taken up adult colouring and any recommendations on books, sites, pencils1 and pens would be great please
