I started coming to this group about two years ago, with no skills in rug-making whatsoever. I found/find Bette to be a wonderful teacher - and Liz too - patiently showing us how to do things, suggesting new projects, etc. We are a very friendly bunch and I always notice how appreciative everybody is of everyone else's work - there's absolutely no criticism or judgement - just encouragement and fun. I myself have made two cushions in 'proddy' and have just finished hooking my first rag rug. And am now ready for new things! Next, I want to try hooking using yarn. And, in a couple of weeks, we are all going to start making Christmas wreaths using lots of methods and materials - good fun.
I also think that it is enjoyable being 'part of the museum' while we are working. Visitors show a lot of interest in what we are doing, ask about techniques, materials, etc. - even start talking about setting up their own group if they live a long way away. Long may we continue!

As a new resident to Wales I joined the group one year ago both to learn a new hobby and skill and also to meet new people.
The group is both friendly and fun with members with very different projects and ideas to observe and give you inspiration and encouragement.
