Please note there has been a change to the date of the AGM in September 2014. The AGM (and branch meeting) will now take place on Saturday 13th September 2014.

December Meeting

The December meeting was a very sociable occasion, with members making Christmas themed gift bags based on a design by Kumiko Sudo from her book 'Omiyage'.

Everyone was very engrossed in the task and keen to complete at least one bag. As the serious stitching business was nearing completion there was time for cake.

Two lovely cakes with prancing reindeers along the sides were made and decorated by Liz and rapidly demolished by the members - stitching and talking is energy sapping work after all...
Just some of the completed gift bags - filled with chocolates
After the exertions of the afternoon, the competition winners were announced. The theme this year was Christmas Pudding.

Second prize probably encapsulated a sentiment many members could agree with...
... and First prize was won by someone who has an uncanny resemblance to one of our long-standing members and who was photographed modelling her prize winning festive fascinator!
