Start a new Craft this Autumn!

Maybe you were lucky and saw some summer sun but the 'Barbeque summer' we were told to expect hardly materialised, and now the back to school signs are in the shops.

Soon the nights will start drawing in, and Christmas looms dimly on the horizon!

How about this Autumn you take up a new craft? The 'Credit Crunch' has meant that many people aren't spending as much time out, and enjoying evenings at home. A new craft is a great way of passing the long dark evenings, that'll be here before you know it. It's far more rewarding that night after night of telly.

You might have seen that we're collaborating with the Ministry of Craft, (see below) but perhaps you're unable to join us here in Manchester's city centre. Then our extensive range of kits are a great way to try something new. With everything inside that you need to sit down and start crafting with, they're a brilliant introduction to a new and (we hope) exciting hobby!, and the selection covers a really wide range... choose from candlemaking or soapcraft, or perhaps you'd like to teach yourself Lacemaking, Calligraphy or Basketry. There's a great choice of crafts to tempt you with further that really deserve a look! They all include some clear step by step instructions so you aren't left in the dark.

If you've found you've fallen in love with something new, you can usually find everything you need to keep crafting, right here at Fred Aldous. Maybe you might make lots more, to sell at the Fayre's and Craft Sales that pop up in the run up to Christmas!
