News and Information From Vale Lacemakers
Our Christmas meeting was very well attended and a thoroughly enjoyable day. We were well entertained by Craig Hunt who spoke about Pantomimes and being a Pantomime Dame, ably assisted by Jenny Martin. Thank you to them both.
Our usual splendid Christmas lunch was much enjoyed and the tables all looked lovely thanks to our Table Decorations theme.
Not a great deal of lace was made but there was much fun and laughter amidst the munching.
We wish a merry Christmas to all our members.
Our October meeting (Sat 12th) was well attended with lots of people bringing items for the Bring and Buy. As usual a wide variety of work was underway and there was a great deal to look at and enjoy.
Details for the Christmas meeting were announced – as usual please bring your own crockery and cutlery for lunch. This year we have suggested Table Decorations as a theme.
Additionally it has been decided that the Rose Bowl Competition will be held at the April meeting instead of October. Rather than the choice of the previous winner in future members can enter any piece of work made in the previous year – any craft is eligible not just Lace. We hope this will produce lots of entries.
Our next Lace Day will take place on Saturday 11th October and promises to be a packed day.
We have a Glass painting workshop which is open to everyone.. If you wish to take part please bring along a piece of glass that you would like to paint. The cost of the workshop will be approx £2-00 to cover the cost of materials.
Our Supplier is the ever popular Margaret Wall with her lovely painted Bobbins – I can feel my cheque book wincing already!
Finally it is our annual Rose Bowl Competition, the theme this year is Bookmarks and I know you all have some somewhere so bring them along and enter the competition. You get to have the lovely Rose Bowl for a year and also to choose the theme for next year. Last Years winner is shown here
