December Meeting - Christmas

The December meeting is a 'Members' Day' when we get a chance at the afternoon meeting to work on a little project, and chat with other members.

This year the theme was Shisha.

One of our visitors, Carol, had brought some beautiful embellished cushion covers, which included Shisha work, and these were widely admired before we started on our own creations.




We only had a short amount of time, so these are some of the 'works in progress' achieved on the day.




There was also cake, a raffle and a bran tub.

Kath won the Christmas competition, by popular vote. This year the theme was 'A piece of jewellery'.

The Embroiderers' Guild is running a major project called 100 Hearts War Stories (click here for details). Details have also been emailed out by Heather to branch members. If we have your email address, but you haven't received the email, please check your junk/spam box.

The Chairman's Challenge for the Region will involve each branch in the region making a sampler of 2" squares. Further details next year.

Happy Christmas.
