Cakes, Competitions, Conviviality - it must be Christmas!


Monday 14th December

The December meeting is traditionally a social occasion and this year didn't disappoint.  The show and tell session revealed (anti-clockwise from top left) a whole year of stitching from Margaret Laycock, Christine Patrick's treasure from a holiday in India, family heirlooms from Freda Morrell and a beautiful ring cushion from Jill Maloney that is being given to Christ Church in honour of the new vicar's induction.  All very different and equally inspiring.

Members were treated to a fabulous lunch provided this year by Taste Deli in Skipton.  Thanks to Enid for suggesting and organising this - it was quite delightful.


The competition to make something in the colours black/grey/white/silver struck a creative note with everyone and we had some fantastic pieces:  muted wintery landscapes, Christmas cards, concertina books and purses.  The winner was Sue Ingles with her covered book made with applique and a mixture of machine and hand embroidery.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed over the year - the meetings would not happen without the continued support of all our members.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
