A Stunning Start to the New Term

Well….. what a busy and energetic start to the new term today. A great turnout of members with lots of chatter to catch up on after the summer break, new projects and some fine examples of work to share with the group!

First of all we welcomed some new visitors – Ella, Vanessa, Karen and Gillian who made themselves at home and appeared to enjoy their day as much as we enjoyed having their company. Vanessa later emailed to say:

‘thank you everyone for the lovely welcome today, I was made to feel at ease. As we all know it’s hard to start something new when you don’t know anyone, but I really enjoyed the few hours I spent with you all today. I’m starting my collection for the book today and Am looking forward to next time’

We also welcome Mary, Maggie and Kerry as new members of the group.

After ‘morning prayers’ were over there were a variety of wonderful items popped up at ‘show and tell’

Jan’s nag and a beautiful wall hanging

Julia’s fab little dress

Kerry’s i pad bag

Lesley – Anne’s whole cloth work and lovley little wall hanging made for a wedding present

Jaci’s fabric book that she had completed and which, quite rightly, she was very proud of!

Julie’s embroidery

Fiona’s two small pieces of work

Corinne’s Christmas decorations

And Monica’s Christmas fabric postcards

Plus, a selection of Christmas cards – to give inspiration to those who had booked on to the Festive Sissix workshop

After ‘show and tell’ Isobelle explained (with a little help from her friends) to some members of the group how to start making their very own fabric journal and Lesley – Anne is very kindly taking over facilitatig the group.

In addition to the above members were encouraged to choose which pattern they would like for the members day event and names were taken for the bag workshop that Jan is going to run in the New Year

And, not forgetting that in the midst of all this Liz was busy collecting membership fees and Isobelle and Corinne were busy making sure that quilts were safely returned!

Well done and thank you to everyone – and we look forward to seeing you next month
