2015 Christmas members workshop

On Saturday we had our Christmas member's workshop. Lots of members turned up and a good time was had by all. We 'podged' polystyrene wreaths and tree shapes with lots of glitzy and traditional fabrics. and did it use up a lot of fabric. We started the day carefully cutting up 2 inch squares by the end of the day for some of us any size or shape  would do!!But the results were glorious as can be seen.
Cutting started in neat and tidy areas


Sharing ideas of other decoration ideas.






all getting started they are looking great already
