February Speaker

Our February Meeting is the AGM followed by our speaker Sue Drage.  Her talk is entitled "Recycling with a Difference".

Sue Drage was born and bred in Rugby, Warwickshire and started crafting in 2012 after a health scare. Crafting then became a great help to her in coping with this.
Sue is now passionate about recycling and upcycling and creates things from many of the items most of us just throw away. She knits with supermarket carrier bags and makes ingenious creations from old cd’s, food tins, ring pulls from cans, magazines etc. These she transforms into handbags, shopping bags, earrings, purses and necklaces – all with huge visual appeal as well as practical uses.
She also makes cards for any occasion including 3D cards.  She has been featured on the Crafty Beggars TV programme on the Together Chanel.  Also on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire Radio, ITV Central News, BBC Midlands Today, The Sun, Star and Daily Mail newspapers and in Real People Magazine.

We look forward to seeing you all at the start of 2020.
