Christmas Party 12th December 2020
Our Christmas Party was very well attended as you can see from these photos.
We enjoyed a very varied sharing lunch and then set to making threaded Christmas Cards.
The adults made a Christmas Tree
We also had a good display of Sewing Sisters and there are more not yet completed, so we hope to have them all exhibited next year to mark our 30th Anniversary

Calum Harvey gave a talk about himself, his career and how he is currently enthused with “Heat Transfer Surface Design”. He brought a table full of examples including small accessories such as keyrings, purses and wallets.
This photo shows the application of vinyl to the fabric in the heat press.
Five Young Embroiderers, including two new sewing enthusiasts, all managed to complete a felt thread catcher with beautiful blanket stitch and decorated them with beads, buttons and sequins.

This was a well attended workshop and, although it wasn't really 'tutored', Janet supplied examples, kits and good old-fashioned iron-on transfers. It was very relaxed and there was plenty of chat and sharing of ideas and advice. There were also plenty of useful books to study from the library.

This talk had been well advertised and was well attended. There were probably more visitors than members, which was a shame, because it was a most interesting and entertaining talk.
