  • Christmas Workshops
    December 5, 2019

    Well, we all had some fun at the Christmas Workshops in late November. Discussions afterwards also focussed on the delicious goodies which were brought in. After getting several requests for the recipe for her Butterscotch Cashew Bars, Mavis has agreed that the recipe can be posted here. Enjoy!

  • Water Fantasy Challenge
    October 11, 2019

    This year’s challenge will be a “Water Fantasy” theme and be a “Brown Bag” challenge. Those deciding to sign up to do the challenge will be given a brown bag in week 5 (November 19). You must sign up in week 3 and 4 to get a brown bag in week 5.
    You’ll receive a variety of fabric pieces which will include a piece of very fancy material that was donated….think of texture, glitter, sequins, gold or silver threads. Let your mind wander as you think about the theme. Be creative; plan. Then sew, embroider, bead or otherwise embellish or whatever……
