May your Christmas sparkle with moments of love, laughter and goodwill

Hello Everybody,
I hope you have your air-conditioners or fans in working order! Only the first week in December and we are feeling the Summer heat on us. Remember keep up your water consumption and wear something on your head if out in the sun for a length of time. I think most of us would rather stay indoors and pursue our favourite activities, like some lazy sewing for example.
Thank you all for the year that has passed. We have grown in numbers which is wonderful to see. During the year we have learnt new skills and found new ideas and inspirations from workshops and from everyone around us. Something I admire in quilters I meet is that everyone is ready to share ideas, techniques as well as friendship. Somehow, this gives me hope for the continued survival of our world.
I wish everybody a very Merry Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.Enjoy the festivities with family and friends. And I will see you in February at one or both of the gatherings.

We had a great turnout to the Evening Gathering, our last for this year. Lots of beautiful work on display and plenty of Christmas cheer.
Our day gathering was a smaller gathering however there was still a great deal of show and tell with plenty of festive spirit. Great to see our visitors becoming regular visitors.
