Presentation time!

20 Oct

At our meeting on Saturday 8th October we had a visit from representatives of Ty Hafan, Julie Williams and Emma Sankey. Sully the Bear came too, he likes to get into all the photos! GQ Chair Caroline Leonard, presented a check to Ty Hafan for £3000, monies raised at the 35th Anniversary Exhibition in July.

Julie also brought a beautiful quilt with her to show members that had been made by Mary Edwards, her Nan’s Grandmother, who was a professional quilt maker over a hundred years ago.

Christmas Show and Tell.

Members were invited to bring in their favourite homemade Christmas decorations,  old or new, for a Show and Tell session. There were some beautiful examples with such a variety of different things from tree skirts and baubles, to wall hangings and table runners. Lots of ideas to take away and get started on!

Then to continue the Christmas theme, work started on making decorations for the Christmas Tree Festival in Holy Cross Church, Cowbridge. More to come on this next month!

To round off a very busy day Heulwen showed a gorgeous Lynne Edwards quilt as you go sampler she has worked hard to complete. Started in September 2015 and completed September 2016. Truly amazing!
