Hi all,

If you're getting as excited as we are about the saucy cross-stitch at the next Crafternoon, then have a little look at these for some inspiration. They're probably a bit complicated for one afternoon's work, but some are very saucy:

Our new favourite DJ, Kidda, even cross-stitched the artwork for his album cover:
I have no idea what the music's like, but I love him already.

Crafternoon returns on Saturday 6th June from 12 to 5.30pm, at St George the Martyr, Borough High Street (opposite Borough Tube). See you saucy minxes there!

Crafty Creatures return, with an afternoon of accessory making, live music and cake!

On the 6th June the Crafty Creatures return, with a second Crafternoon extravaganza at St George the Martyr, Borough High Street (opposite Borough Tube!). The first Crafternoon was held at Easter, and was such a massive success that the ladies have expanded to a bigger, better venue with more room for crafty fun.

This time the theme is ‘DIY accessories’ and we’re trying our hands at magnificent monster brooches, pretty pom-poms, and recycled plastic purses. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, our crafty ladies will help you whip up some saucy cross-stitch or (for the younger crafter) finger puppet critters, while plying you with the finest array of hot drinks and home-made cakes. All you need to bring is an old t-shirt and an appetite for crafting and cupcakes.

Fabulous raffle prizes will also be on offer and live bands will strum acoustic music for your listening pleasure. With a venue that is opposite Borough tube station and a stones throw from London Bridge, a fun afternoon of craft and cake couldn’t be more convenient.

The Crafty Creatures fundraise for the charity FairPensions, who campaign for your pension to be invested responsibly and ethically. All profits will go to them – so while you’re stitching your brooch you can be happy in the knowledge you’re helping to make the world a better place. So come on down to Borough and let out your inner crafty creature!

About the charity we're supporting...

FairPensions campaigns for UK pension funds and fund managers to adopt responsible investment practices; calling for them to engage with multinational corporations on issues including human rights abuses, climate change and access to medicines in the developing world.


FairPensions is supported by some of the UK’s leading charities (including ActionAid, Oxfam and WWF), the largest trade unions in the country (CWU, GMB, Unite and UNISON) as well as thousands of individuals. FairPensions is the operating name of Fairshare Educational Foundation, which is a company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales (number 05013662) and a registered charity (number 1117244).
