The following photographs are from today's Christmas Party meeting.   Ann Jones led a workshop on a quick Pineapple Block technique.

This photograph shows some of the Table Runners that were made for the Challenge competition.  The first one on the table made by Ann Jones was the winner and below are a couple of detail photographs.

This was our last meeting of 2012 and we had a lovely day together with mince pies and sausage rolls, and we look forward to our first meeting of the New Year.  This will be a 'sit and sew' day when we can work on our own projects and catch up with each other's holiday news.  In February we have an all day Talk and Workshop with Kate Dowty.  The subject is 'Playing with Paintsticks'.  If you would like to take part in this workshop please email or telephone 01305 786801 to reserve a place and a booking form will be sent to you.  Please be sure to include your contact address in your email or message.
Here's shing you all a very Happy and Peaceful Christmas and Best Wishes for a Happy and Healthy New Year and of course Happy Quilting.
