We had a well-attended meeting on the 12th of October, which was our open meeting. As well as many familiar faces, there were a good few visitors, some of whom decided to join the IPS on the day.
Several demos, and a well-stocked shop (thank you, Moya) had us inspired.
Jane Horner amused us with her tales of travelling around the world in a catamaran. Her sewing set-up on board was well organised, and she had many textile-related encounters on the way as well as interesting cultural experiences. She also brought some beautiful Mola work from the San Blas Islands, where they originate.
The Christmas Challenge was announced: Make a Christmas table decoration. Any size, any method. As long as you would have on your Christmas table, it is eligible for the challenge.
Our Show and Tell was fantastic as ever! We finished with the presentation of a bouquet to Mary Palmer to congratulate her on winning three(!!) prizes together with Anne Kiely at the recent Festival of Quilts.
Please note: Our next meeting date has been changed. The November meeting will take place on the 16th.
