January meeting

Happy New Year to everyone. I hope you will all achieve great things this year and that all of us at Judbury crafters may be part of it.

We had the lowest attendance ever, with only 14 of us showing up , which is so very disappointing. Such a small group will not cover the cost of the hall and refreshments, so I will keep my fingers crossed that next month will be much better.

Although we were just a few, the show and tell table was full of beautiful and interesting pieces.

Julie knitted a baby blanket, spun some beautiful yarn and knitted a lacy shawl.

Pauline showed us two wall hangings, made with fibres all sorts, and sewn down by machine. There were two dyed shawls and two necklaces, all made in the most unusual ways. Her Christmas present was a photo book with a compilation of pictures and memorabilia from all the wedding outfits she made, spanning 35 years!!!

Michelle made a lovely small quilt with pieces from a charm pack and quilted on her long arm machine. Great job.

Helen finished a quilt that she had started a long time ago, made with fabrics bought at the market in Franklin for the princely sum of two dollars. That is what you call “up cycling “. It looks like a million bucks.

Helen Dowd machine embroidered a placemat with matching coasters for her granddaughters birthday. Bright and beautiful.

Valeri has been very busy dying various items, tablecloth, shawls etc. and weaving some stunning shawls. Wouldn’t mind them for my birthday .

For Christmas I received a kit for a small bag with an embroidered border that I enjoyed making over the Christmas brake.

I hope you enjoy the pictures and I am looking forward to see you ALL next time.

Stay healthy and happy

Regards Johanna
