Our last meeting of the year had a festive feel with members bringing along their contributions to our Christmas buffet and everyone enjoying their lunch very much, especially the meringues! And of course it was a great opportunity to catch up with friends.
After lunch we were shown how to make a crazy patchwork angel, enthusiastically led by Chris Harris. Here are some of the angels created.....
We can now look forward to seeing the completed angels when they return at our January meeting.
Alongside the meeting and lunch, there was a display of the beautiful work produced by Sue Taylor, a former member who sadly is no longer able to stitch.
This is some of the work which Sue created when she was working for her City and Guilds certificate and diploma.
At our next meeting in January (no meeting in December) we shall be making Bushkiri bags, made from a folded, embroidered square of fabric. Here are some examples to inspire you:-
And, finally, Glossop EG is very proud that the work of three members was displayed in Members' Challenge exhibition at the Knitting & Stitching Show in Harrogate. The theme is 'Underfoot':-

The theme of this year's challenge is 'Life's rich pattern'. The closing date is 28 February 2019 so, if you haven't already started, you have just enough time to stitch and submit your own entry!
