Nineteen ladies braved the snowy roads for a fun-filled, or should we say fibre-filled afternoon of sharing and working on our projects on January 12th. SOFAAR welcomed three new members to the group today as well. A warm welcome to Ann, Lynn and Linda!
Kudos to Irene and Audrey for driving all the way to Paradise from Weymouth to share our afternoon.
It was wonderful to spend time together seeing new beginnings and on-going work.
Our next gathering will be in Digby on Saturday, February 9th.
On December 8th at the Christmas “Saturday Snips” social, the draw for Marilyn Preus’s beautiful silk quilt and pillow was held.
The lucky winner is Françoise Trottier of Bridgetown. We are thrilled that Françoise won the quilt as she is, herself, not only a quilter but a fan of Marilyn’s work. The quilt has gone to a very appreciative home.
SOFAAR would like to thank all those who purchased tickets on the quilt. The money raised will go towards programming and workshops for SOFAAR members.
The social was well attended and a very interesting show and tell of members’ work took place including some of the miniature stockings from our workshop in November.
We hope to see many of you at our next Saturday snips event on January 12th at the Brickton community hall.
Fifteen SOFAAR members spent a very agreeable Sunday afternoon on November 25th learning how to make a delightful little Christmas crazy stocking under the patient and watchful eye of instructor Kay den Hartog.
We all hope to have our little creations to show at SOFAAR’s next gathering on December 8th.
Many thanks to Kay and to Céleste for all their help and clearly printed patterns.
Thanks also to Céleste for sharing her silk stash and to all participants for sharing bits of lace, fabric, buttons and beads and all manner of shiny bits!
Rachael made us all tea and coffee and provided snacks and we were very grateful to have a break as the afternoon whizzed by and we admired everyone’s handiwork.
Join us at the Paradise Community Hall from 1 to 4 pm on Saturday, October 13th for an afternoon of stitching and fibre crafting. Bring your current project or a show and tell and share an afternoon with like-minded fibre enthusiasts!
