December meeting


Christmas newsletter

Thank you for all the postcard competition entries, hopefully they will inspire us to create Bulgarian postcards but remember that these MUST be mounted on board. No rush for these.

Other competitions include “Lights Fantastic”, for April and Embroidery Perse for our AGM in September.

Have you signed up for the Jacob’s Feast on 29th Jan. Bank Top Church, 11.30 to 3.30. Please bring your finished bonnet brims, canvas squares and usual sewing equipment.

Barbara is unable to speak in Jan so we are having a metal workshop. Please save tomato tubes etc so that we can experiment. Bring usual sewing kits, scissors to cut metal if available, shiney threads.

Ann has requested hand made cards again, as stocks are getting low.

There has been move staff changes at HQ. Ann will bring the Newsletter from Kathryn and message from Anthea which explains “all”.

Please let me know if you have any items for our Bulletin. AND most important, the committee would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas. Looking forward to seeing you in the New Year.


Sadly due to the awful weather, the support  for last nights meeting was far less than normal. Even I did not want to set foot outside my door and I was the tutor for the night!!

We began with a show and tell. Phil showed us his most recent Christmas hanging.002

However we went ahead and I demonstrated how I make felt embroidery. I had made kits for all members and instructions were given.


All members began to make a felt bead necklace and I hope to see them being worn in January. Philip is excused.

Our  usual excellent festive food was unfortunately missing so Ann managed to make mince pies and we judges the Christmas competition. Jackie produced an excellent festive postcard seen  above012and was presented with her gift, a lovely box that Ann and I had seen and bought at  the K and S in Harrogate.


Please bring tomato paste tubes,and sewing equipment to our amended January meeting……snow permitting.
