Jenny Stacey is keen to get the Harrogate U3A Craft Group up and running.
She is a qualified and experienced tutor retired from working in further education. She currently runs a craft class in Huby and helps to run the Leeds U3A craft club and is also a public speaker. But she does need someone to help look for a venue, take care of the money, refreshments etc.
Her idea is that the class could meet on a Saturday morning, once a month and she would do some crafting and encourage members to lead some classes.
This sounds like a wonderful opportunity to have a skilled leader who needs some assistance as she lives in Huby.
Hopefully some of those who did papercraft before will be interested. She is a paper crafter--and the group would make cards in different techniques including - tea-bag folding, iris cards, quilling, seasonal ones, mens and ladies cards, boxes, paper flowers, crackers and Christmas decorations.
If anyone is interested in joining the class and/or can help with admin - email:
Reading an article in this month’s Saga Magazine about the U3A I saw that in West Wiltshire there is a Dolls’ House Miniatures group. This set me thinking as I have several Dolls’ Houses and wondered if any other U3A members are into this hobby – if so would you like to meet up on a regular basis – not sure what we would do at this stage but if anyone is interested please contact
This potential new group has had a delay. John Roho is not able to start this group at present. Hopefully problems will be solved soon.
Upholstery and Furniture Restoration
This is a very exciting new venture. At present Andrew is searching for suitable premises so if anyone has a good idea please let him know. Also if you are interested to join this group - email Andrew Middlemiss at email@example.com
