Ciara Tyrrell from Cope joined us for the meeting and was thrilled to accept the mini alphabet quilts on behalf of Cope she told us that they will hang them in the children’s playroom as they will brighten up the space for the children.

We also had some of our own members giving demonstrations on how to make quick and simple Christmas decorations. Madeleine showed us a variety of the many decorations that she has made over the years including a beautiful small box to hang on the tree. Margaret showed us how Suffolk Puffs can be effectively turned into a Christmas tree wall hanging. Sandlin gave us a detailed and fool proof explanation of how to make stunning Fabric Baubles and Jackie demonstrated how therapeutic it can be stuffing the fabric tubes required to make plaited Christmas Wreath.
