Sociable Crafting



Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus Covid-19 outbreak, Craftable has to suspend its meetings indefinitely.  This decision has been taken with a heavy heart and after a lot of thought, but the welfare of our vulnerable members must come first.

We will be back!!!

I’m looking into the options available to us – Zoom or Skype maybe – and will keep all our current members informed.  In the meantime, please accept my sincere apologies, and my very best wishes for your continued good health.

Much love

Jen and Christine




Hello and welcome to Craftable’s website!

Craftable is a community constituted not-for-profit group to promote sociable crafting for those who find it hard to leave their homes or feel isolated because of long-term physical or mental health conditions.

The aim of Craftable is to recognise that crafting isn’t, as often depicted, a solitary activity carried out in isolation; it’s something millions of people have in common, love to talk about, share, and enjoy together. By setting up this group we hope to reach people struggling to leave their homes or talk to other adults; to give them a reason to come out once a week, to learn a new skill or practise an old one, and to share with others in a similar position. To keep the group effective and approachable, there is currently only room for 10 members.  If you think you would benefit from meeting up in the heart of Southend on Sea in a warm, friendly environment, please send Jen a message so that your taster session can be arranged.

We meet at : The Royal Naval Association (RNA) 73-79 East St, Southend-on-Sea SS2 6LQ every Thursday afternoon from 1.30 pm to 4.30 pm.  Each session costs £4.00 (£1 for carers), although there is no charge for the taster session.  

Craftable is currently run by Jen Snow with the invaluable help of Christine Davenport.  We look forward to meeting you.
