Christmas is Coming!

4 Oct

At our October meeting a number of members were busy preparing for Christmas! Many visited the activity table to help make Christmas decorations for the GQ tree which will be on display during the Holy Cross Christmas tree festival between 27-29 November 2015. Many thanks to those who gave their time …. and, we look forward to receiving more next month!

There were also a number of other members who were busy preparing Christmas goodies for themselves…

After canvassing for workshop ideas Jackie Pugh offered to run a workshop to make this beautiful table runner which can either be made for Christmas or anytime of the year – we will keep you posted.

And, Ann Williams brought some small quilts that a friend (from an English quilt group) had made. They were made to represent a book title, film etc. For example, the first one below is the film Free Willy. Can you guess the rest?

We also welcomed new member Pat Wallace – great addition to the group as she immediately got stuck in with the Christmas decorations!

And. we said hello to guest Karen, a friend of Salinders who also gave her time to make decorations – very much appreciated!

And, last but not least, a big thank you to Hilary who stood in at short notice to give a talk. Continuing the vintage theme from Caroline’s talk last month she took us through a journey of her sewing career with a memories journal that she had made for her sister Jocelyn. And, to support that journey she showed many pieces of haberdashery and embroidery memorabilia.

A great day and looking forward to the next already!
