We had a fabulous meeting on Saturday – a great turn out, despite the wintry weather – and we had great fun with a quiz, a Christmas Tree Decoration Challenge, treats and even a sing song.
Áine Foley of Lismore Quilt Co. braved the weather to bring her shop and she also gave us some great quick Christmas project ideas in her demonstration. These included wonky Christmas trees, Miriam Gogarty’s beautiful pattern – Emma’s Tree and some free patterns from www.makower.co.uk and Studio Sew of Course (Sandra Jansen)
As always, our members blew us away with their beautiful work in our Show and Tell, with some stunning quilts, wall-hangings and other projects both festive and otherwise
And there was more, as we had fourteen entries for the Christmas Challenge!
Congratulations to the winner, Clare Newell, whose tiny, classic Singer sewing machine decoration won her a voucher to spend in Áine’s shop.
Many thanks to Ann Prendergast, our resident Quiz Master, for preparing the quiz, and congratulations also to the winning team – choccies all round!
We finished the meeting with a hilarious and exhausting rendition of The Twelves of Christmas – well done ladies, it’s a memory I’ll always treasure.
Our next meeting will be in the Sacred Heart Church Hall, Western Road, Cork City on Saturday 14th January, doors open at 10am. Our shop will be Appletree Crafts.
***** Please note that after the meeting Appletree Crafts will be running an afternoon workshop on mini landscapes. Contact a committee member to book a place *****
A Merry Christmas to one and all and may we all have a peaceful and blessed 2023 xxx
