Fun and sharing at the Snips

It is always a great Saturday afternoon when we get together to work on our fibre projects. We were a good crowd on January 11th in Bridgetown.

Knitting, quilting, hooking, cross-stitching were all taking place.

Saturday Snips is also a place to share expertise and to ask questions.

Julia was able to get some quilting advice from Céleste and Aprille.

A Successful Snips
