Craft­ing skills can lead to show prizes

Caernarfon Herald - - NEWS -

THIS week, Craft Cre­ations is back to chat with Aul­wyn Latham, of Crafts by Aul­wyn. Aul­wyn, who we fea­tured last month, is a mem­ber of Rhos-on-Sea Coun­try Mar­ket and she, along with other mem­bers, was en­tered into sev­eral of the com­pe­ti­tions, in­clud­ing ccrafts and pro­duce, at the re­cent Eglwys­bach Show.

The group wwas delilighted to ccome away with a num­ber of first, sec­ond and third plac­ings and Highly Com­mend­eds, in­clud­ing a Best in Show award.

It was Aul­wyn’s first time of en­ter­ing, and she did it purely for the plea­sure and ex­pe­ri­ence and wasn’t ex­pect­ing to win any­thing.

She en­tered nine classes and was ab­so­lutely thrilled with the re­sults, as she man­aged to achieve a Highly com­mended, two third places and two sec­ond places!

The group have also won fur­ther first prizes at the Den­bighshire show.

Rhos-on-Sea Coun­try Mar­ket takes place ev­ery Fri­day and of­fers a range of home-baked wares and pre­serves, hand­made crafts, cards and jewellery, plus home-grown plants and pro­duce.

It is held at the Methodist Church Hall, St Ge­orge’s Road, Rhos-onSea, from 10am to noon. As well as wel­com­ing visi­tors to the mar­kets, they are also very keen to en­cour­age new mem­bers to join them.

If you have an in­ter­est in crafts and en­joy mak­ing items at home, why not con­sider be­com­ing a mem­ber, too? You can work on your hobby at your leisure and then bring your fin­ished craft along to their meet­ings on a Fri­day (at­ten­dance each week is not com­pul­sory).

Maybe you are a young mum at home, who en­joys craft­ing as a hobby? Earn a lit­tle ex­tra rev­enue and, at the same time, meet like­minded peo­ple and also learn new skills, as they are a very friendly group who en­joy shar­ing their craft­ing knowl­edge.

To find out more, ei­ther pop along to the mar­ket on a Fri­day morn­ing for a chat, or get in touch via their Face­book page: Rhos on Sea Coun­try Mar­ket
