Sixth Clock-eaters Craft and Lace Day in Skillington
Crafts and cake were the focus of the sixth Clock-Eaters Craft and Lace Day in Skillington on Saturday.
Villagers and friends gathereds to try various crafts, including bobbins lace-making, tatting, knitting, cross-stitch, black-work, tapestry, card-making and stone painting.
Diana Cox, of Pippins Patchwork & Craft, in Market Deeping, ran a small workshop to make a fabric thread tidy in the afternoon and a visit from Judy Sewell, of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, accompanied by Fabia and Hana and hearing dogs Valour and Shadow, was a real highlight of the day.
The event raised £345 for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and small donations will also go to Skillington Village Hall and Skillington Wesleyan Church.
