As per Donna MacDonald's  announcement at the December meeting place mat construction classes are being arranged for all members.  The goal is  to replace the present place mats used at our pot luck luncheons.  There is no cost to you, the Guild will supply everything except the sewing machines and labour.
The first class will be in January and there will be a class later in the spring.
Contact Karen Bright if you want to attend any of these classes.

December 2013 Christmas Pot Luck

The weather was a little stormy and icy, but we had a pretty good turn out for our annual Christmas Pot Luck Luncheon.  The food was amazing, the craft (a wreath made from Christmas patterned cotton strips) was fun to make, and the company and cheery conversation was great.  It was a good way to start the holiday season!!!!!
Not too many calories!!!

One way to use the Christmas Wreath - looking good!!
