Well ladies, that’s craft night done for another year- and it just keeps getting better! Or so I’m reliably told… Friday evening was actually my first ever experience of the legendary Falkirk Vineyard ladies craft night. Despite being on the team last year unfortunately I couldn’t make the actual event, so having heard such wonderful things about previous years- I was very much looking forward to this year! So much so that in my giddy excitement and anticipation of the event I agreed to lead a craft table… need some jewellery stamped?! It turns out I’m not really your girl for the job… but you were all so kind to me and did a fabulous job stamping! Who knew hammers could cause such hilarity?!
As well as my hammering we had other much more proficient crafters offering decopatch, cross stitching, card making and beautiful colouring sheets. Thank you so much to those who led a craft table, we know how much time and effort goes into preparing for these events and we love your talents and were so blessed by the craft skills you shared.
This year we had 55 wonderful women who participated in crafting and we loved having you! And we’d really love to invite you to the four other events we have in our calendar:

As well as 55 crafters, this year we also had 7 stalls selling wonderful treats, treasures and gifts, including our own Eden pop up shop. The stalls added such a lovely atmosphere to the room both before and after the crafting and bonus- I finally started my Christmas shopping! Thank you so much to the stall holders, you really made this years event special.
We were also lucky to have such kind staff from the park hotel who really went out of there way to serve us and who even partook in a little festive shopping of their own. I’m sure the poor bar man will one day recover from the horror of me answering his question ‘of what type of bowls do you need?’ With – ‘well you know bowls. Just the kind of bowly bowls to put stuff into that you normally put into bowls.’ But you’ll be glad to know bowly bowls were provided and snacks consumed aplenty.
And when I wasn’t snacking I was watching and learning from our lovely Lyndsey. As always fabulous Lyndsey Henderson led our FV Ladies Ministry team so well to organise craft night. Tonight I am thanking God for Lyndsey’s leadership, commitment and heart for women in Falkirk Vineyard and beyond. I’m also praying for next years craft night and would love if you would pray along with me for guidance, wisdom, provision and for the women who will join us next year for an evening of festive crafting.
Thoughts, experiences, and encouragement from the ladies of Falkirk Vineyard.
