CREATIVE Sheffield residents who make and design their own greetings cards have received a £1,000 grant to help with their venture.
Nearly 20 Jordanthorpe residents involved in the group were given the funding by housing management firm, Sheffield Homes. The crafters have created an estimated 6,000 cards, over the seven years the group has been running.
The group design and make cards for all occasions from Christmas to birthdays and christenings. Using techniques including stamping, decoupage, painting, pastels, inks, members even pen individual verses for the cards.
As well as supplying a source of personalised cards to make occasions that extra special, the group also provides an opportunity for those involved to meet up and have a chat over a cup of coffee.
