Last year I started the shoebox scheme for local families in need. It was very successful. This year Carlos fish and chip shop in Alnwick is the drop off point for toys, groceries and shoeboxes and hampers. People should cover the shoebox in Christmas paper and put a note on top secured with elastic band as to who it is for. eg. elderly man, elderly woman, child, boy or girl age group or single man or woman. Shoeboxes should contain special gifts for the recipient. We have many families locally that need help. Please let us know of anyone you think may need help. 2nd hand toys in good condition, food for the food bank, luxury items for the hampers and filled shoeboxes are all welcome. If you cant do a shoebox, one or two items are still most gratefully accepted. I am looking for volunteers to organise the same in different parts of Northumberland.

refelt re.worked re.cycled
refelt is a concept developed by Hala Zaluczkowska, involving the reworking and recycling fashion and textiles. Quality fashion items such as coats; suits; hats and accessories are collected and worked on to create an individual and tailored item. Textiles are recycled to make tactile blankets and throws and furnishings with a bespoke offer. Each item is considered individually to create re-loved, re-worked pieces for a contemporary market. Felt is incorporated into both fashion and textile items.

I am an artist based in North Shields, where I run groups and classes through my community interest company. I also run creative days at the coast in Low Hauxley near Amble. Full details of any of the classes can be found on my website under creative classes. I can also organise classes to fit with your plans/wishes. I work primarily with felt and fibre but not exclusively. I embrace an environmentally friendly ethic in my work and encourage it in others.
