It's always good to end the year with a good clear out and judging by the size of our sales table this month, everyone had taken that advice to heart. One person's clutter is another's treasure and so we swapped and purchased new items for our stash, raising a total of £34 for the coffers. Left over books will be recycled for the next sales table on April 28th (note the change of date to accommodate Easter) and any left over fabric was donated to Birdcage or made into craft bags for African charity workers known to Enid Pyrah.
The competition to make something using the colour silver attracted a small number of entries, each beautifully crafted and very different. Our usual voting system declared that Clare Hutchinson with her Wild Woman brooch, was the winner.
In the hectic whirl that engulfs us during the run up to Christmas, it was lovely just to sit and chat, show each other the projects we have completed and enjoy the mince pies and seasonal cakes on offer.
Happy New Year!
