It is always good to get together again and see what we have been making over the holiday season.

First to take in was the ‘travelling suitcase’.  The Creative Fibre suitcase contained the entries in the 21015 festival neckwarmer challenge.

Dawn, a new member, showed her lovely top and gifted her new fibrecraft friends a fabric brooch each.

Romain has been doing more Eco dyeing

Greta worked on what to do with her left over yarns


Marilyn has picked up her needles again and has been sampling and making items using new stitches.
