End Of Year Round Up!

 Well, where did 2015 go?!!
Lots of projects finished and more started. Lots of monies made from our Exhibition and these were gratefully received by our four Charities.

Lots of knitting finishes going on at the last few meetings
 Including these "Fidget Muffs" made for Dementia sufferers.

Some mitts from Beverley

And a baby cardigan from Debbie (I think!)

Some snowman Mug rugs
And more of the Prick and Stitch cards

The last of the wreaths completed
and some more folded decorations
Some perusing of projects to come

Remember the navy and white smocking that we saw in progress?
Well Carol completed this lovely dress for one of her Grand Daughters

I wont show you pictures of the bun fight shared lunch that we enjoyed! It was not a pretty sight!

Here are a few more of the pieces being worked on

This years Christmas Challenge was handed out - We are to make a fabric clock and were given a fat 1/4 of background/backing and a clock mechanism.

Jo has kindly sent some finishing instructions to help us out. Pop over to the Tutorials page to read these.

Our programme of events will be handed out at our first meetings starting Monday January 4th and can also be viewed in our Diary page.

As NO ONE came forward to organise our programme,  you will notice that there will be more project days led by group members, so we had ALL better get our thinking caps on.

Thank you to those who have volunteered to take a session, you will be on the NICE list for the whole year!!

Come January, we will have been going for 15 years!!! So despite all I have put you through you keep on coming back !!! 

On behalf of our Committee may I wish you all ....

A Very Happy Healthy and Productive New Year!!
