Mollie Makes & The Big Comic Relief Crafternoon!

It's no secret that I love a bit of event planning. Therefore as soon as I saw that Mollie Makes magazine were repeating their Big Comic Relief Crafternoon, it was just a no-brainer that I would go for it! Planning (and the associated lists upon lists), crafting, and cake, all in the knowledge that it's all for a truly great cause - what's not to love?

My copy of the magazine is already thick with folded-over corners - projects that I can't wait to get my teeth into: pompoms, amigurumi, shibori-dyeing, to name but a few...

The idea is that you get a few friends together and have a few making sessions together, and then hold a mini craft fair to sell your wares. All proceeds will go straight to Comic Relief, helping to fund projects worldwide.

Comic Relief | the difference your donation makes

I have decided to hold two weekend 'crafternoons', in the run-up to the event, plus one weekday morning. If you are in Hertfordshire and fancy joining us for a crafting session, we'd love to have you! There are other ways in which you can help, however:

  • Donate wool for pompom making (or indeed, pompoms!)! Email me if this is something you may be able to help with :-)
  • Sponsor us on the Red Nose Day Giving Page
  • Join our Fickle Crafters Facebook group, to sign up for the events
  • Come to the Big Crafternoon Sale on Saturday 18th March! I'm still to finalise the venue, so keep an eye on our Instagram, Facebook page, website, or this blog to stay up to date.
  • Buy a copy of the Crafternoon magazine and hold your own event! You can get yours from Sainsburys or online, with at least £5 from every purchase going to Comic Relief.

Tell me, are you holding a Crafternoon? I'd love to hear which projects from the magazine are your favourite?
