Crop CJ completed

Well, we may not have blogged about it, but the crop CJ went ahead as planned and it ran smoothly with no hiccups and completed on time - especially good as this was a first CJ for most of the members.

In the end only 5 of us took part. As this would have produced a very slim book using normal CJ rules, we decided to send each book round twice, so each of us got to contribute two times to each book and each book ended up with 10 contributions in it.

We were all delighted with the books we received back at the end of the CJ and now are planning to do another CJ, maybe later this year.

Here are all 5 books gathered together ...

And here are the proud owners with their books ...

Crop CJ

Recently we have talked about the possibilty of running a crop CJ (Circle Journal).  I have put together some information for those of you new to CJs,plus some suggestions for possible themes, plus some information about how our CJ would operate.

There is a new tab at the top of this page that says "crop CJ" - if you click on that, you will see a new page all about CJs.  I will also bring printed copies of this to the next crop.  I'll bring along some of my completed CJs too, so you can see what they might look like.

I'm really excited about this idea and hope that there are enough of us to take part - it should be great fun and challenge your creativity, as well as resulting in a beautiful book for you to treasure.

September Crop!

A very big thank you to Janet who is booking the Old Court House for the Crop in September. 

Crop will be from 13:00 - 17:00, payment to be made to Janet upon arrival for the booking of the room. 

You can park down Kirkland Street which is the street you use to go down when we where at the Methodist Church, but don’t park in there.  You can then walk down Kirkland through the small no entry street down to George Street and the Council room is opposite just in front of the Police Station.  You go through the double (red) doors on the front left of the building.

The End of an Era...?

As no doubt most of you will have read Kate's email now and her decision to end the crop.  I'm sure it's as much as a surprise to you as it was to me, but equally that she has her reasons and I'm sure it was a hard decision for her.

However, a number of folks have commented that they would like the crop to continue if possible so a couple of us have decided to look into that possibility as we have enjoyed getting together each month, and some of you have also commented to me how much you have enjoyed the classes we've been able to bring you.

So - the blog.  I will not close it down for now, but will removed the details of where and when until such a time as we are able to resurrect it in some form somewhere.

Please join me in wishing Kate all the best and hope that she will be able to join us again in the future.
