Our meeting on Tuesday started off with the normal business meeting but the hall was decorated with a tree, star garlands and wrapped Christmas presents for Secret Santa. So if anyone needed reminding that it was Christmas there were plenty of clues!
Each member brought a wrapped present for secret Santa, placed it on the table and took a raffle ticket. As the tickets were drawn each member chose a present.
Our Christmas competition was to use our stars from last month to make a Christmas decoration. We then voted for our favourite and the winner was the pretty blue and white garland. A big thank you to all who took part.
For our activity we learned or practiced a new stitch; the Quaker Stitch. The stitch was relatively easy once we got into the rhythm of it. We then wrote our name or a shortened version of it.
After the stitching we were ready for our Jacob's Join which looked very inviting. Thank you to all members who had brought food to share. It was very tasty.
Thank you to all members who took part in the meeting and Happy Christmas to everyone and we hope to see you all in the New Year.
