What shall we do with our Craft Cafe?

1 Dec

We’ve had some great times at Craft Café in the Park Barn last year but this year it hasn’t been popular at all? We are restructuring all our Make events over the Christmas period for next year and so we need to hear from you if Craft Café is what you still want. As hardly anyone attends is it worth continuing?

We need you to vote with your feet for this one! Tomorrow night, on Monday 2nd December 7-9.30pm,  I will set out a few tables for Craft Café alongside the other workshops. So if you are busy crafting and making your own Christmas presents at home for example please come down and craft with us! You will be sure of a warm welcome, friendly chat, a hot cuppa and lots of home baked cakes to choose from and all for a bargain price.

I’ve put more details below for you if you are new to us. Please do share this with our friends who might like to join us


What is a Craft Café?

Well to put it simply it is an evening where you can bring along your latest craft project to work on, enjoy good crafting company, find inspiration, eat cake and drink tea. What more could you ask for? Come along and try it.





We originally set it up to provide our community here in Horsham with a place to be creative, have fun, feel good, and share and learn crafts skills. It is run alongside our more structured workshops that also run during the evening so it’s nice to have a look at what others are up to, our events are very informal and a lot of fun. No need to worry about getting there dead on 7pm, turn up when you can it will be great to see you!


Where and when is it and how much does it cost?

It is only £4 for a place at Craft Cafe. All advice, tips, tea and cake and good company will of course, be free. The £4 is to cover basic costs, such as hall hire, insurance, advertising. You don’t need to pre-book but it would be great if you can let us know that you will be coming but its not essential. You can contact us by emailing us at makehorsham@yahoo.co.uk

Brighton Road Baptist Church, hall at the back, entrance off New Street, Horsham.

(NB. Due to another booking in the main hall the car park at the back will be quite full tomorrow so allow extra time if you are driving. there is another car park opposite this one on New Street and lots of on the street parking in surrounding roads.)

    I’m quite new to the Horsham Make group. I hadn’t realised there was a craft cafe – it sounds like a lovely idea and something that I’d enjoy. Unfortunately I can’t make it tomorrow, but I hope enough people come along to keep it going xx

    I haven’t really enjoyed the evenings ive done craft cafe as most times there has only been me and you. I enjoy sitting there crafting but need the social element too. I have commitments right up until xmas now so cant make it until new year. Hope you get a good response as it is a valuable resource. Lesley

      Hi Lesley,
      Thanks for you imput and yes I agree with you although it is lovely chatting just with you, there needs to be a fair sized group for everyone to get the social element out of it. I hope we’ll have a good sized response (and hopefully lots of people who come along tomorrow) otherwise there seems little point in continuing the craft café side? Its almost like that slogan ‘If you don’t use it, you lose it’!! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and see you on the new year x

    I only discovered Make Horsham a few weeks ago. I’d like to come along to the craft café (I’m a crocheter who’d like to try knitting, so it would be nice to mix with different crafters), but I can’t make it tonight. I really hope it keeps going.
