THURSDAY NIGHT ...

... was quilt group in Sandbach. We had a speaker ....


...who is a Primary school teacher here in Cheshire. She gave us an inspirational talk about how the teachers are attempting to incorporate crafts into the school year and showed us examples of the childrens work..


she also talked about the school they are linked to in Kenya and the MANY differences between the two areas... and brought quilts /wall hangings made by the children in the 2 (very different ) schools..... 



She was an excellent speaker , and our ladies very much appreciated her talk.. and contributed a HUGE pile of fabric, wool, buttons, ribbons ,crochet hooks , needles (knitting and sewing) and many other items all to be used in the school x

The latest fundraising idea was launched...



......much to the delight of our ladies xx... I had more samples but I sold them x

A good night once more with a great bunch of ladies x

What a super evening and how wonderful that the schoolchildren are being introduced so young!
Glad the mice were a success.
Received my BOM and LOVE it, must give it a go for myself. Thank you so much. Just back home a bit early as our friend's funeral is in West Midlands tomorrow so we changed plans.
