Friday at the hub

Sophie is running a group tomorrow with Mum Tracey: "Tomorrow's play session from 11am-12noon should be okay for all ages up to... at least 7... maybe 10. Sponge printing and craft for older ones. Activities until quarter to 12 and then we will set up for coffee and do some rhymes. £1.50. 50p for siblings. Donations for refreshments. X"

Then at 12noon - 1:30 I will have our usual coffee time with flapjack (it's in the oven) and the odd custard cream :) which Amy must be kept away from. Penny will be at the hub to answer any questions on her new vegetable collection scheme in collaboration with Shillingford Organics. 

At 2-4pm it is the Women's Network's Beat the Blues Session. 

There is no Tai Chi tomorrow as it is half term which makes me very sad and I will miss it terribly. I will be at home trying to remember my mountain top but I don't hold out much hope. 

Dates for your diaries...

Friday 24th February Penny's How to...Knit Workshop with Liz and Victoria too (I hope). 12noon -1:30pm. This is the first of Penny's How to... sessions with Penny's Transition Exeter hat on. It will run during our usual coffee time so just pop along.  

Thursday 8th March Crafty Swap for Oxfam International Women's Day organised by Hannah and Pip of The Craft Hub. 10am-1pm


Local craft collective, The Craft Hub, in conjunction with the Hub on the Green, are hosting a wonderful morning of Craft Swapping in aid of Oxfam's International women's day.

 Check your cupboards, attic and drawers.  Do you have a welter of wool? Are your tins brimming with beads or buttons?  Are your fabrics in a flurry or your ribbon on the rampage?!  Its spring and time to clean out your unused stash. The Craft Hub are looking for local crafters keen to clear out years of craft supplies hoarding.  As a crafty collective, the organisers Pip and Hannah have first hand experience of how crafts can take over even the tightest spaces in the home.
Come along to the Hub on the Green for 10am, bring your stash and help to raise some money for Oxfam and celebrate International Womans Day (because we're worth it!).
Saturday March 3rd Our Cake and Craft Fair 10:30pm-4:30pm 
Saturday March 31st Our Cake and Craft Fair 10:30pm-4:30pm (This is April's fair brought forward)

I am looking for an unloved magazine rack for the hub if anyone has one they would like rehoming and a smallish round table for our reception area in the Health Centre which is the right height to sit around and write (i.e. not a coffee table).

A big thank you to Isabel who has given us a baby monitor which will make life so much easier. Sometimes I leave people waiting by the door of the health centre as I am sorting things out in the hub. I can take the phone with me but I can't take the doorbell. Someone (and I can't remember who) had the great idea of putting a baby monitor next to the intercom and carrying the other bit around. Genius. And Isabel has made it possible so no more apologising to people left waiting :)

And finally. We are holding a raffle at the Crafty Swap for Oxfam's International Women's Day. Only a raffle isn't very much fun unless there are some exciting prizes. So if you have anything to offer (and it doesn't need to be craft themed) then please do get in touch. I would really appreciate your support on this one.
