AGM and 'Show and Tell'

September Meeting

Our September Meeting was the AGM; we completed the business part in record time, and then spent an enjoyable time relaxing and looking at what some members had brought to show. Val's ongoing piece was not for photographing, as it is going to be on show at the Knitting and Stitching Shows later this year. (for a preview, look at this month's 'Stitch Magazine)

We were all delighted to see Marilyn Hughes' 'Medal for Excellence' presented for her outstanding work in her City and Guilds Feltmaking course. Hopefully, Marilyn will tell us soon, on the blog about the awards ceremony, in London, which sounds very glittering, and exciting.

This is a very prestigious award. Congratulations Marilyn!
 Janet introduced us to Ted, beautifully dressed up for Lake District walking. He always carries a Mars Bar in his rucksack. He is several years old, now, and can testify that the size of Mars Bars has shrunk considerably since he started out!

Debbie's doll, reminding us to get ours finished!

Debbie's seed-head, from Shirley McKeand's workshop

Debbie's felt applique, made into a file-cover.
Janet's patchwork bag.

Marilyn's beautiful, delicate felted shawl.
Lesley's painted, machine -embroidered and applique picture.
So, lots to look at, talk about and catch up on. A good start to our new year, with a programme we hope will appeal to everyone.
