Christmas members workshop

The Christmas members workshop is always a lovely event - where everyone comes together to stitch and chat. This years activity was a christmas tree decoration swop.  We called it The Great British Sewing Tree.

Getting started.....

guess what Janet is making?

Gail starts a starfish - did she not get the theme? (only joking, it was a lovely star) 
 We also had a lovely display of Pat Wither's work lent by her family. She was a long term member of our Branch who sadly passed away at the beginning of the year. She is still very much missed.  What a prolific and talented stitcher she was

a page from her sketchbook

Di had a great necklace and Saskia quickly got stitching.  Look at that concentration!

what were those three so interested in?

a selection of ornaments for anyone needing inspiration

despite a poorly arm Joy came along to chat.

 Not everyone was paying attention

but when they did,  boy could they pose!
 Afternoon mince pies - yum yum.

And the finished tree - thanks to Jean for making it. We made such a lot of decorations that it started to wobble.
 And from the otherside. Look out for the sprout fairy!

It was a lovely day, with our usual fabulous sharing buffet. Thanks to all for making such a great day.

Happy Christmas!
