Nuno Felt

Sandra K. has now finished working on the piece of nuno felt she made at the September meeting. The muslin was dyed sea greens, purples and blues and it was going to be an undersea picture. However after the felt was worked vigorously it took on the shape of a dress so it was turned into a" mermaid's dress"!!!

Embellisher Work

Maureen has been on an embellisher course at Alston Hall where she made this beautiful landscape with crimson poppies.
She also completed her shoe from the November meeting with a flower made in the same way as the poppies.
It has made me think that I need an embellisher for my birthday!!!!

December Meeting 2011 Talk by Fobbles

Our meeting started with a talk by Beverley Trembath from Fobbles on how she set up the shop,found premises and the stock she now carries. It was a very interesting and amusing talk. She brought items for us to purchase so we could treat ourselves to some early Christmas presents!

Our Christmas competition was to make a calendar. Anne was voted the winner for the pretty circular calendar in the top left corner. Well done Anne!

As this was our last meeting before Christmas we also had our Jacob' Join and you can see us all enjoying the food and the Christmas atmosphere. Thank you everyone for the donations of food. Hope you all have a Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year .
