What a month!! The Crafty Mum Toy Shop went to the Toy Fair in London to seek out new and exciting toys coming on to the market. We met loads of new toy makers, as well as old friends, and played with some amazing toys! It will be amazing to share some of these toys with you when they arrive in store!

 

It might have been the January blues, it might be the fact we all need a holiday, but this month The Crafty Mum Toy Shop worked alongside those at Worthing Spanish Social and organised Club de Niños - an informal term time group where Spanish or aspiring Spanish speakers can meet with their families and chat over coffee and cake! The club starts in February, breaking for the half term, and we have a number of Spanish aids and toys coming to the shop to mark it's launch. Watch this space  for some amazing new toys coming in!

The Crafty Mum had loads of fun at Wickmas! This years theme was Winter Wonderland and it was exactly that! Live performers Jack Frost & The Snow Cat  were there and you could see the beautiful real live Owls from the Sussex Falconry. Fantastic day!

 

The Crafty Mum ran a Christmas Wish Competition where you could win anything you wanted from the Crafty Mum Stall. Bobby, from Wick in Littlehampton was the lucky winner of The Crafty Mums Christmas Wish Competition. Their gift of choice was a DinoEgg and they also bagged some Christmassy treats to share with their siblings. 

 

The beginning of December saw The Crafty Mum at Amberley Museums Market! Amberley Museum & Heritage Centre is set in a 36 acre site in the South Downs National Park. Dedicated to the industrial heritage of the South East, exhibits include a narrow-gauge railway and bus service (both provide free nostalgic travel around the site), Connected Earth Telecommunications Hall, Milne Electricity Hall, Printing Workshop and much more. An amazing day out and Father Christmas made an appearance too!


November 2017

As we get very excited by Christmas here at The Crafty Mum, we had to help out at a local late night early Christmas shopping event in our local town! All the stall holders contributed an item to produce a hamper which was given away in a prize draw. Here are the highlights of the night!

 
 

On the 18th of November The Crafty Mum was attended The Jamie's Wish Christmas Craft and Gift Fair. This charity raises funds in order to send wish boxes to children and young adults fighting cancer.  

 

The Crafty Mum supported the Rowland Singers at their Christmas Event in the beautiful surroundings of St Mary's Church in Broadwater, Worthing. The children loved meeting Santa, and loved all the toys and crafts on offer. 

 
 
 
 


We kicked off November with a BANG at the Worthing Christmas Gift fair. Over 85+ stall holders were there, all helping raise funds for the Childrens Ward at Worthing Hospital. Here are some of the highlights!

October 2017


It is not all work work work here at The Crafty Mum. We set up a little table at the Worthing Rugby Club situated in Angmering and whilst we were there we popped into a local baby group, Baby Sensory. Baby Sensory was the first (and original) baby programme to offer a complete approach to learning and sensory development from birth to 13 months. Designed to stimulate, educate and provide precious memories during the all-important first year of life, Baby Sensory has won multiple awards both nationally and internationally since 2008. Run by Vicki Russell, we had loads of fun and will hopefully be back soon. 


 
 
 






The Crafty Mum visited Birdham in October for the local Crafts Gifts and More event in the village hall. We all wore something pink in aid of breast cancer and raised nearly £100! Thank you to everyone for coming along.



September 2017



The Crafty Mum is coming to Camberley! We will be at the King's Lodge Care Home on the 1st October helping raise funds for the Alzheimer's Society. The free family friendly event runs from 10am until 2 and will have a bouncy castle, face painting for younger children as vintage fun fair stalls, food, drink and craft stands for all to enjoy. 


 
 
 


The Crafty Mum was at the Broadwater Fun Day, Dog Show & Market which was raising funds to support the good work of Guild Care. Even the Mayor made an appearance! Here is some of the fun of the fair and more about the charity.



August 2017


The Crafty Mum had loads of fun at the Yapton Summer fair, raising funds for the The Cinnamon Trust, a national charity supporting the elderly, the terminally ill and their pets. We made some great friends and we hope to see you all again next year!


 
 
 
 
 
 

As part of Wick Week, the Crafty Mum joined the Hartbeeps action at a Baby Rave and Rock Cafe!  The event was well received and even made the local press. I really do hope it becomes a regular thing!
