Castlethorpe Craft Club



Castlethorpe is a small village situated just a few miles north of Milton Keynes.

The Craft Club which began in 1998, with just a few friends meeting informally for coffee and chat, celebrated its 10th anniversary in January. Originally just for cross stitching, as members interests diversified into other crafts we decided to become a Craft club. The club is open to anyone interested in crafts.

Cross Stitch Day

On the last Saturday in June we hold our annual Cross Stitch Day at the Village Hall.
Now a popular event in the Crafter's calendar it is attended by many crafters from the surrounding area and beyond. Our first attempt at putting on such a day was attended by just 6 but as word spread of a good day out our numbers have gone from strength to strength.
The regular craft supplier for the day is Gaynor, (Gavand Craft Supplies Dunstable ) who carries a wide and varied selection of cross stitch, lace making, card & paper craft items as well as other exciting craft goodies. Gaynor always has time to demonstrate her new items in stock to tempt us.
