Feeling the purse string getting ever tighter with the run up to Christmas? Crafting your gifts yourself is the way forward. Crafting is therapeutic, sociable and saves the pennies. Crafting also gives your handmade things a touch of personality and exclusivity.
If you are feeling inspired, even by Kirstie Allsopp, then how about going to a Christmas Crafternoon in aid of The Royal Manchester Childrens Hospital.
