Our March meeting was full of lively chatter, bringing the sun out and giving a warm feeling which ignored the ice and snow outside. Show and tell included a crocheted Easter bunny nibbling on a needle felted carrot; a beautiful knitted blue tit; embroidered and beaded brooches of seahorse and owl; the beginnings of a …

Phew! What a lovely hot summer’s day today was. Too hot to be out and about maybe, but just right for sitting in the cool of the village hall and being creative. The show and tell session saw a stunning quilt which had been 2 years in the making, but well worth the effort. The …

A lovely needle felted baby seal was presented to the group through the show and tell session. Made on a local day course, s/he won lots of hearts. Most people had another attempt at making a little macramé owl keyring. Having to be ambidextrous and working with both hands equally was a bit of a …
