Summer Party with a difference!
We are coming to the end of our second year as an independent textile group so this was a great opportunity to have an informal get together and a good old chat.
The tables were beautifully decorated with summer flowers and a salad lunch was provided followed by delicious selection of puds prepared by members.
Now you will understand why I have entitled this post, Summer Party with a difference. It’s July and here we are now talking about Christmas.
For those who really adore Christmas, forward planning is an important part of their lives so I had to chuckle when, after lunch, Tase got to her feet and started telling us about her collection of Christmas quilts. She had brought her treasured quilts in the most enormous blue suitcase and by all accounts, a few were still missing.
Tase explained that each quilt had its special place in her house, some covered tables, some hung from the walls and some had practical jobs – place mats or tree skirts. She has still got her kid’s stockings even though they are grown up and have children of their own!
Members, do remember to put the date of Monday 16 October in your diary because Tase will be leading a workshop entitled Christmas Mug Rugs. So what is a Mug Rug? Well, according to Tase it is a mini quilt, large enough for your mug of coffee AND a slice of Christmas cake. We live and learn!
You will be notified when bookings open for this workshop.
Thanks Tase, it was a fun afternoon!
