MAKER'S EVENT in Colwinston.

The CLIC group’s two day event on 21 and 22 September was a great success. Ten makers, aged between 22 and 80 plus ,displayed a fabulous variety of arts and crafts . There were 8 demonstrations over the 2 days which proved very popular, especially those where visitors could have a go.  Our vibrant banners were once again much admired, as were the colourful displays of crochet and patchwork. Thank you to all the people involved in making the event so successful and all the visitors who came along to support it. Special thanks to the makers and the team in the kitchen ,who kept everyone well supplied with tea and lovely homemade cakes during the day. A big thank you to the Youth Club members who helped set up on the Friday and all family and friends who helped in so many different ways.

CLIC is a very informal group of crafts people who meet regularly, sometimes to chat about what could be done next and sometimes to actually do things. If you would like to join or have more information about future plans please contact Pat on

CLIC - Craft Ladies in Colwinston

Success at the Vale Show. Some of the CLIC craft members entered the Produce section at the. Vale of Glamorgan Show yesterday and were successful. Germaine Broadbent, Nia Davies and Joan Hughes won first prizes and Chris Williams won a second. This was the first time they had taken part in the show. Congratulations to them all.


Last year, this small group of friends made over 1000 poppies for the Curtain of Poppies displayed at the Annual Wonderwool Exhibition at the Royal Welsh Showground. They decided to carry on with their crafting and made a plan to make something to display at this years Wonderwool show. The Spectrum Friendship Banners have been made over the past 12 months. They consist of 9 panels each about 2metres by 1 metre. There are 3 embellished felt panels, 3 patchwork panels and 3 decorated knitted and crocheted panels. Everyone has learned new skills and enjoyed the friendships that the group has engendered.

Thanks to the Colwinston Community Council, the Colwinston Village Hall, Adelaide Walker and White Gecko Crafts, the Sycamore Tree Inn and Charlies Café, who have all helped in many different ways. The photograph shows some of the group with the banners which were admired by many at the showground.
