The Lucky Penny Crafty Club was started by a group of crafters who met at various craft markets, although no-one seems to know why it was named Lucky Penny!
The idea was to have a regular meet up to work on projects,share skills and ideas and drink cups of tea (or wine). Over the years our membership has grown and our meetings have been held in various places, but last year we lost our premises when a member moved out of Auckland. We now meet on the 1st Wednesday of each month at the Hub.
Our aim is just to be a social space for crafters who knit, sew, crochet, embroider or whatever other craft takes your fancy. Currently we have lots of members on our Facebook group (www.facebook.com/groups/luckypennycraftyclub), but only a handful who come to the meetings. We’d like to build on that number and also do stuff like hold workshops and go on crafty road-trips.
