Christmas Social 2018

We all met up on Saturday 8 December 2018 at the village hall in the Weyhill Fairground for a relaxing get together, interspersed with stitching,
nattering and eating. Everyone brought a plate of food to share and the committee provided us with drinks and a stitching project. This turned out to be a bubble pod.

This year, having been asked to bring 2 fat quarters, needles and threads, we were given a pattern to follow.  It looked quite complicated. However, most of us have learnt rule 1 of sewing - read the instructions!

We started working, fortified by mince pies, sausage rolls and lots of tea and coffee. Gradually quilting designs began to evolve and some of us were brave enough to start cutting around the template!

We knew we would be finishing the bubble pod at home, as machine stitching was involved, so this enabled us to work at a steady pace and not to rush.

This small pod will be very useful for holding all sorts of bits and bobs and I have to say, mine is nearly finished!

Thank you very much to all the committee for organising such a relaxing and enjoyable day and to everyone who attended and joined in the fun.
