Our Christmas Social, was as good as usual. We had a very busy programme for the day with so many interesting items. Two members were caught in a queue behind a road accident but luckily got there in time for the lunch.
A delicious lunch
Members sat round having a good chat.

Glenys presenting her Bursary Award (2016) work and what she created during 2017. Several individual Mandala embroidery frames of beautiful stitchery. She used this opportunity to practice stitch and is now an enthusiastic expert.
Kathryn ran her reverse raffle, everyone loves taking part, such fun. We had two other raffles as well. A really good time was had by all.
Eight members has a most enjoyable day 'Making a Better Bag'. This was a workshop run Kathryn, one of our talented members. This was the second bag workshop she had run, it was just so popular with everyone.
We all got down to work and had a friendly but industrious day. Most of the bags were completely finished.
Here are some of the completed bags.
We were all really thrilled with the results, they all looked so professional.
