Christmas Star Turn

The snowy weather did not deter those who turned out for coffee and scones on Tuesday. Pre-hanging nerves were put to rest as there were plenty of stars to hang on the tree. The stars are to be sold by West Park URC to raise much needed funds at a sum of not less than £1.00 each.

If you have any completed stars, or just want to pop in to see the tree, why not visit the coffee shop between 10.30 am and 12.00 noon on the days that it is open. You can add your star(s) to the tree whilst you are there.

There are still some of the Irene Angel cards left if you would like to purchase them. They cost £1.00 each or a pack of 5 costs just £4.50.

Thank you to everyone for making the Christmas Tree Stars such a success.

TRACY RETREAT @ The Quilt Museum


The choice was freestyle or a traditional flower using various techniques

Crewel Work
Here a choice of two designs resulted in very different pieces of work by everyone

What a fabulous time we all had over the weekend of 13/14 November at The Quilt Museum with Tracy Franklin. A Retreat Weekend, including a sandwich lunch with one day of Crewel work and one day of Goldwork. You all missed a treat. We also got the chance to view the "Freedom To Stitch" exhibition in the main gallery which was an added bonus and, of course, there was a bit of retail therapy in their excellent shop.
