Our Christmas Meetings are invariably a joy, with Christmas jumpers, earrings and other decorative jewellery on view. This year was no different and enhanced with our invariably ice-cold hall being so warm that the doors had to be opened.
Jean and Ruth, our wonderful caterers, provided hot drinks and delicious cakes, for which we offer them our deepest thanks.
The ‘make and take’ bottle bag Christmas Challenge produced a variety of shapes and colours of bottle bags. Click here to view them for yourself.
Then came an exceptionally entertaining and witty floral art demonstration from Roberta Orr of Flora Desingz, click on her name to access her website.
‘Don’t forget the Pound Shop’…. you had to be there to know what this means!
Good enough to eat!
Roberta had promised to make three Christmas flower arrangements, but she actually made five. These were given away as ballot prizes.
Everyone left with huge smiles, especially those who had won the right to take home the finished items.
Some comments on our 2018 Christmas celebrations included
- Such a great atmosphere at yesterday’s meeting. Thanks to all involved for making it a good one!
- All went well hope everyone enjoyed the day as much as I did thanks to all.
- It was a lovely day thank you.
- This was my favourite.
Before you go – here’s a must-see exhibition from two of our talented members, both of international reputations. Loving Margaret McCrory’s self-portrait and Irene MacWilliam’s work is always inspiring and exciting.
Roll on to January 5th when we’ll take part in ‘Demonstrations by Members’. This is a popular event, where several members bravely take up a table each to make a 10 minute demonstration of a technique, tip, pattern or something interesting. We divide into however many groups that there are demonstrations. It’s a perfect way to start the New Year – Our Ruby Year.
Until then have a happy and healthy Christmas with lots of best wishes for 2019.
