After a considerable number of set backs with finding a suitable home for Church of Craft Manchester (we’ve lost two venues the week before meetings were due, thanks to fire/flood and then an eviction) I am truly over the moon, sun and stars to announce that Church of Craft now has a permanant home at Platt Chapel, Fallowfield.
The Chapel is a 220 year old non-denominational church and a Grade II listed building, a far better environment than the cafes we’ve tried to make work in the past! There is, of course, a cafe there, I cannot craft without some cake and a coffee, and I urge all of the Manchester congregation to buy their fairtrade and very reasonably priced drinks to help fund this new and wonderful social centre.
To celebrate the first week of opening the Chapel, we will be having a special one off Wednesday meeting, this Wednesday 25th March from 6pm until we get thrown out. The main project will be to decorate fabric squares which will then be used to create a beautiful piece of patchwork wall art for the Chapel.
On behalf of Church of Craft Manchester, I’d like to say a big thanks to all of those who have been involved in The Chapel project so far and I’m so happy to have finally found the Church perhaps its natural home in a chapel
Address : Platt Chapel, Wilmslow Road, Manchester, M14 6JA
