Festive Activities

At the December meeting we collected a huge selection of items for the Friends of the Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton Branch. Thank you to all who made and donated in support of this very worthwhile cause.





After news updates and show and tell, Liz moved the meeting onto the crochet and beading workshop. Out came the crochet, fine twines plain and glittered, packets of beads and the 0.6 mm crochet hooks for the beading. Liz explained how to make necklaces by hand crochet and demonstrated the techniques. Liz also demonstrated the method using the knitting machine. The Long Buckby Machine Knitting Club were acknowledged for the patterns, they do have a very good website and is well worth a visit.



 In between the busy beading we all enjoyed some festive mince pies with our teas and coffees.

Happy New Year!
