Our annual Saturday Snips Christmas Social taking place on
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.
A great time was had by all!
About 17 SOFAAR members met on Saturday October 13th to work on projects and show them off at the Paradise Hall.
Lots of tasty treats and wonderful work to look at.
Hope to see you next time!
