Is this BBQ weather?

July 9, 2011

Of course it is! Although our order for glorious sunshine has clearly gone astray the Annual Glossopmoot* Garden Party and BBQ will go ahead. We have a gazebo, plenty of space inside the Labour Club and everything needed for a relaxing afternoon of conversation, good food and crafting. We will see you tomorrow!


Glossop’s got Talent!

July 8, 2011

Todays Independent features moot* member Cathy Carr (on p 46-47) and her crochet glass. Cathy was exhibiting at New Designers One Year On in London and was talent sp0tted by the Independent as as a designer “to watch”. You can read the article here and here’s one of Cathy’s pieces…

Cathy has a studio in Glossop at The Smithy Studios and a website.

Also in the news this week is moot* member Anne Boardman who was featured in the Glossop Advertiser and yesterday’s Manchester Evening News. Anne is a weaver and has designed and produced these elegant clutch bags from recycled video tape.   Anne’s bags are sold at The Smithy Studios.

And don’t forget the Garden Party and BBQ this Sunday 1 – 4pm at the Glossop Labour Club.
