Craft Classes

There will be two Craft Classes in June on Tuesdays 11 and 25 at 7.00pm.  The class is held fortnightly in the middle room of the church hall.  There will be no classes in July.  We will resume in August.  We have knitted hats for children in Syria, also some ladies have donated clothes and footwear for all ages to be sent to the refugee camps.

We are knitting hats for premature babies that are being sent to hospitals in Larbert and Glasgow.  We would like to thank all the ladies who have been busy knitting the hats as we have had a great response and I am sure the hospitals will be delighted. 

In the autumn we will be knitting, sewing and making other crafts for the Craft Fayre which will be held in November as usual. We will also be knitting hats, scarfs and mitts/gloves for children and adults, for the Blythswood Boxes.    

If anyone has any other project that they would like us to help with, please let us know.  Also anyone who wishes to do sewing, crafts or other knitting please come along and join us.  It is very informal and we usually have tea, coffee and biscuits.

Social Afternoon

There will be a social afternoon on Thursday 13th June in the Church Halls from 2.00pm until 4.00pm. Come along and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee, some home baking and a chat. 

Barbecue

The annual barbecue will be held in the Church Manse on Saturday 6th July at 4.00 pm.  Tickets will be on sale during the month of June.

St Ninians Autumn Show

We are going to hold another show which is open to the entire community in the Church Halls on Saturday 14 September at 2.00pm.  We hope it will be as good as last year when we had one hundred entries.

The categories will include:

·         Flowers

·         Vegetables

·         Preserves

·         Baking

·         Knitted Garments

·         Sewing

·         Crafts

·         Photography

·         Children’s Drawings

We were delighted that the Sunday Club took part last year and all the children entered drawings.  There will be an independent judge to decide the winner of each category.  Tea, coffee etc. will be served.  There will be a booklet available in July/August with all the details regarding categories etc.
