Monday 20th January
Our first meeting of the new year opened with a Jacob's Join lunch. We put aside our January fasts and enjoyed some delightful food, proving that our members are have many talents.
We also shared some of our new projects and this one caught my eye. Margaret Laycock has started a year long project which will involve making 12 luggage size tags - one for each month of the year. The designs reflect the colours of the landscape, nature and the weather: the sample shown is "August" with clear skies and herbaceous borders composed of delicate layers of organza. It's still work-in-progress but when it's finished it will be cut to size and the label constructed as a double-sided piece with decorative machine cord. Margaret quipped that February will be a challenge - grey and dull! I can't wait to see the end results!
Claire Ketteman gave an overview of the StArt in the Dales project and the exhibition of our work that is now on display at Craven Museum and Gallery (Skipton Town Hall). See previous blog posts for more details or Jill Maloney's newsletter (accessed via the tabs at the top of this page).
Looking forward to an exciting and challenging 2014.
