As is traditional, there will be no formal meeting in December 2019 but there will be plenty of fun, mince pies and other Christmas goodies to enjoy and of course a Kris Kindle – maximum value €5 but do bring hand made gifts if at all possible!
There will be Christmas demonstrations on how to make Christmas gifts and ornaments. There will also be an exhibition of Christmas craft work and members will vote for their favourite. The winning entry will receive a prize!
A charity swop shop will be held on the day so do bring along all those “unloved” fabrics and other sewing related items.
Sit & Sew Afternoon – the hall has been booked for the afternoon. So stay behind after the party and tackle some of those UFO’s or other projects you have on hand! If you are staying, don’t forget to bring your lunch – plenty of tea/coffee and biscuits will be available.

Those of you who went to the Knitting and Stitching Show will have found some great bargains and as we have no speaker for the meeting, perhaps you would bring along some of those bargains and show us how clever you were at shopping!
Joe of Floppy Fabrics is bringing her shop to the meeting so we hope you didn’t spend all your money at the Knitting & Stitching Show!
