Dec 18To close off our meetings for the year we had our Christmas Party. In addition to tables laden with food, members bring in a selection of work completed over the year giving, everyone a chance to look at things closely and also to discuss the work with the creator for advice, technique guidance and inspiration.

We also use this day as an opportunity to give something back to the local community by providing some crafted items to a suitable cause. This year members knit Teddies (aka Trauma Teddies) which are available for the emergency services to distributed to children in traumatic situations, in the hopes of enabling communication and clamming the child down. It was wonderful to see such a range of teddies and PC Jen Wilson was grateful for the contribution and confirmed that they would be put to good use.
