cottonreelholder1The Tandridge Handicraft Society was founded six years ago. Its aim is to encourage crafts in the area. The membership consists of both experts and amateurs and provides inspiration and guidance for all to create both beautiful and practical things. Some of the crafts which members are working on include patchwork, knitting, quilting, beading, tapestry (or canvas work), textile art, embroidery, appliqu�, lace making and crochet.

The membership comprises all ages and the society is keen to welcome younger members in order to keep the crafts alive in the Tandridge District. It's a very lively and friendly group.

Weekly meetings are held during term time. They last three hours. There is always someone there to help anybody who becomes stuck on a problem or who wishes to learn a new skill.

Talks & Demonstrations. Monthly talks and demonstrations are given by experts in their fields. These are well attended by members and visitors.
Fee for visitors is �3 at the door which includes tea and biscuits.

Workshops. During the year, Saturday Workshops are held when members can learn new skills.

Society Outings. Each year an outing is organised to a place of interest and inspiration for the members.

Projects. The project for 2007/2008 was to make a quilt using the Japanese Folded Patchwork method. Many of the members made several squares each which have been stitched together to form a single-bed quilt. The quilt will be raffled for charity at the Tandridge Handicraft Exhibition in March 2009.

Where and When. The members meet every Monday during the school year between 1.30pm and 4.30pm at The Woodhouse Centre, opposite Tandridge Leisure Centre, Oxted.

Membership fee. Yearly membership fee is �38, which includes all talks and demonstrations. Visitors are invited at �3 per Monday session. Please contact the Chairman for more details.
