Crafting for Katie - Arthritis Care Scotland fund-raising!

As you all know, or may not if you are a new reader to the blog..... My teen has Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis.  Katie was diagnosed in 2006 with Enthesitis Related and Psoriatic Arthritis. Last year she arranged a fund raiser for Arthritis Care Scotland... and this year she is doing it again!!

We are holding a craft day in Kilmarnock and she is hoping to raise £1000. If you would like to come along, please email me the event can be found on facebook and here is the link CRAFT DAY!

The day will be fabulous and costs just £10 per person, this will go to Arthritis Care Scotland. for your £10 you will get a table and chair with space to work, tea/coffee...bottled water, a light lunch and a fun day out to work on your projects.

Angela from Angel Crafts will be there with her gorgeous shop and all the scrummy goodies and we will also have some classes to teach techniques that you may have seen and wanted to try.

 A second date was also given to me and this will be announced as soon as possible.

Some donations for raffle prizes have been made from Tando Creative, AngelCrafts, Stamp box, and Carol Bryson Wood (Independant Stampin Up demo). We welcome any donations of crafty raffle prizes for the event and will be glad to post out raffle prizes to anyone who wishes to buy tickets... we will let you know soon how you can purchase your tickets.

Helen Cosgrove will come along on the day and offer hand massage/neck and shoulder massage to anyone who wants it.... as Katie's Auntie she is well versed in the care needed for arthritic joints. Helen is a mobile holistic therapist covering Kilmarnock and surrounding areas.
