Last week a great number of members turned up for our festive Christmas meeting.
First of all we have to say thanks to Ann Prendergast for all her hard work in making the quiz!! It was great fun, and you had many of us stumped at some point! Most of us joined in, and no-one got ALL the questions right… The winners got to share a bundle of fabrics.
The festive raffle kept on giving with a record number of prizes, so we had many winners there, too.
The challenge had about eight entries of wonderful Christmas table items, and the (random) winner received a sewing machine service.
And then a large number of quilts were shown off at our Show & Tell. Many quilts were Christmas themed, as we would expect at this time of year, but many others were shown off, too. And of course, all lovingly made! Some have been sprinkled throughout this post, all can be found below:
Thanks go to Moya for bringing Patchwork Plus to the meeting.
Lastly, thanks to all those that had been baking or buying festive snacks for us to enjoy, to Mai for manning the coffee/tea, to Cora for manning the library, and to the committee for organising the meeting, adding the picture round to the quiz and bringing in the (non-alcoholic) spiced wine to add to the Christmas atmosphere.
Wishing you all a very happy time at Christmas whichever way you will be celebrating this time of year, and we hope to see you all again in the New Year. Our January meeting will be on the 11th.
