Member's Workshop and Open Day

Upon entering the room, we were greeted by Jean's handy work - beautiful displays were everywhere and set the Christmas atmosphere for the day
Thank you Jean

The table was prepared for our prospective visitors for our 'Open Day.'
There were Christmas decorations to inspire us
Here is our beautiful arrangement of items for sale. Today marked the beginning of our efforts to raise funds. The table proved a great success!
Margaret contributed a lovely theme of Scandinavian embroidery for Christmas items which proved to be very popular and most effective as you will see from the results at the end of the day
Visitors came and shared a mince pie and engaged with our work. We were thrilled to welcome a new member today
The Scandinavian embroidery was a great 'hit'
