Becoming a member of the society is a straight forward process. Below are the forms that we require to be filled in for your application to proceed. We also ask for 2 initial samples of your work. These samples are then presented to our committee who then decide whether it is to be accepted.
We will ask you to fill out 2 forms (see below) and also to provide 2 professional references, as the society is only here to help people with a limited income.
We are always on the look out for new members who have a talent for making both traditional and contemporary handmade goods and craftwork. Could this be you? Or do you know anyone who could benefit by becoming a member.

Did you know that we supply a special order service?
We can repair an item, wash and stretch a shawl or even have an item made to order. For example, do you have a special item you would like to have knitted but cannot find the time. Then let us help you - just contact us or pop into the shop.
Any donations made will be gratefully received.
If you you pay tax and donate through Gift Aid, that will allow us to reclaim the tax you have already paid on your donation which will then increase the value of your gift to us.
Please print out and fill out our Gift Aid form then send it to us. Thank you.
