Christmas Party 2011

On Friday the 25th November 2011 20 members of Silk-n-Threads arrived at St Martins school hall to enjoy an evening of festive merriment. We had a Secret Santa, our usual Christmas Tree decoration competition and a shared table supper. Thanks to Anne Worsnup who is in hospital at the moment for her organising of the event as regards catering and decoration. Get well soon Annne. Thanks also to Beryl Wood for stepping in at the last minute to cover for Anne as well as all the behind the scenes work that she does.

As usual we had a great time and it was a early start to the festive season for us all.
The tree decorations this year were based around silk cocoons that members painted and then decorated. What an array of creative ideas considering that everybody was very concerned that they couldn't DO anything with white cocoons. All in all a very inventive collection of decorations.

Third prize went to, on the left, Muriel Draper. Second prize to, on the right, Annette Anderson (this years Chair) and first place to Margaret Steeden centre.

For some reason blogger has uploaded this image sidewards, I've tried several times to no avail. The places were as follows, top was third, middle was second and bottom was first.

Can all at Silk-n-Threads wish all those who visit our blog a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

First meeting next year is the 9th January 2012.
