Santa Claus honoured our Guild with a visit on Saturday 2nd December, which made a good day great.
It’s the child within us who greets Santa with enthusiasm and smiles.
It was our own esteemed Man Friday and Quilter, Brian McKenna who fulfilled the role.
Members crafted tree decorations from felt, beads and fabric to create a stunning display. Santa Brian patiently wrapped them all and then redistributed them to the NIPG members.
Mince pies were consumed and everyone was encouraged to sing a particular version of Jingle Bells. The one depicted here is similar to that which we sang, but if anyone would like to send in the actual words we could put them up here.
A delightful display of glass ornaments was the first thing you saw when entering the hall.
This was accompanied by an intriguing talk from Anne Marie Nelson and her partner about glass making. A great variety of questions were put to them. All in all, very interesting indeed.
A link to their website will follow.
