Some of the members recently went on a trip to the Royal Armouries at Leeds. It was organised by another local group who are doing work on a theme or 'Warriors' so it was an appropriate place for them to go. We all had an enjoyable day and everyone got some ideas for future projects.
We have another 'Make and Take' session coming up next month and we are doing 'Christmassy Things' similar to the items in this photograph.
We also had a selection of the flowers that Brenda showed us last month that people have got finished and one item even included into a cushion cover.
Next month we are having another patchwork day and will be making a christmas table runner or a table centre, whichever you prefer.
Christmas lunch is booked for the 13th December at the Crossways so anyone not yet booked who would like to go can you contact me as soon as possible and I will get your name on the list.
We are hoping to have a joint meeting with Hull Branch and do two 'Make and Take' sessions at the March meeting. They are only a very small Branch and don't have much opportunity for workshops so hopefully this will be the start of many joint ventures.
We had a very enjoyable talk from Gina Smith about her 'Travels with a Needle' who brought along some lovely pieces of work for us to drool over and who gave us an entertaining journey through her holidays and trips to some very exotic places and some not so exotic but just as beautiful.
