I braved the Arctic conditions yesterday and went to Padiham branch. Kathryn demonstrated how to make a simple ,but very effective Christmas decoration and then we all had a go. We exchanged a Christmas card and voted for our Xmas competition,subsequently and deservedly won by Joan, our hard working secretary.
The branch continues to grow. Three more members were signed up during the afternoon. The first workshop on Boutis is now full. A date and time for a visit to Gawthorpe Hall was arranged : 1.30 on 21/02/12. Kathryn then reminded us to buy our tickets for the AGM weekend and said that due to numbers, two more workshops had been arranged.
We shared festive food and then arranged to meet at our next meeting in February. This will be based on our Kiribati postcards.Looking back to the start of the year,when numbers were low, I am delighted to acknowledge that we have another strong branch in our region.
