It's been a pleasure....

It was with our motto “Encouraging, Creativity and Friendship” in mind that our social media footprint was established.  Through this platform we are able to share our activities and achievements, and share quilty news with other groups, whilst catching a glimpse of what others in the area are doing. 

Since establishing our first website and later on our Blog, Facebook and Flickr album I've enjoyed coming up with new ways of promoting our groups activities and wonderful work through each site. It's been wonderful to watch our following grow and to read your lovely comments.   However after many years of creativity that I have thoroughly enjoyed it's now time for me to take a break.

As many of you know handing over control always comes with some trepidation, but it also provides a wonderful opportunity for growth, new perspective and a chance for somebod else to bring their visions to reality.

So with all of this in mind, I'm signing off now, with warm wishes and many thanks to you all for your continuing support.
