Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!
Thanks to all who attended our Christmas meeting in Ballygilbert.
We had a great time and everyone enjoyed the games, Stand Up Bingo and the
Many thanks to Jean Openshaw and Joanna Warwick and their volunteer helpers
for the lovely mince pies, shortbread and mulled punch.
There was a good entry for the Christmas challenge, lots of ballot prises and the Secret Santa.
The show and tell was brilliant with so many new items. There were several items from Jennie Raymond’s workshops, several new quilts that are being made for family members and celebrations
and lots of other beautiful items. Well done ladies you never fail to show your skills and delight our members.
The entries for the Christmas challenge showed a great variety of interpretations on the theme ‘Winters Tale.’
First prize went to Gillian Barr
and the second to Valerie McKeown. Well done.
Our next meeting is on Saturday the 7th January in our usual venue at the folk Museum. There will be 4 demonstrations and conversation. We always enjoy the demos and craic as well as benefitting from sharing techniques and sparking ideas and inspiration! Hope to see you all there.
Don’t forget that the programme for the meetings and the workshops for the year are listed in your membership cards.
Best wishes to you all.
