We won!

A great end to the lacemaking year. We took first place in the popular vote at the Christmas Tree Festival at St Peter’s Church in March. Our tree was decorated with lace poppies in different patterns made by members, to commemorate the armistice 100 years ago.

Christmas meeting

We enjoyed festive (non-alcoholic!) drinks and nibbles, while trying to master the art of making decorative Chinese good luck knots with red and green cord.
