Well, we quilters of southern Snowdonia had our meet up — Thanks to all of you who could make it to these rural, frosty climes.
After some games, scones, high jinks and the few introductions that were required, we are now looking at a weekly group meeting on a Tuesday and a monthly group meeting on a Thursday. The idea is to hold here at Bumble Bee Quilting in Corris Uchaf on Arriva bus route x32.
If you couldn’t make it today and are interested, please let me know here – just so I can organise space to ensure you are all accommodated and included. These groups are open to all – those who are new to quilting and those with more experienced fingers – any one with an interest in fabrics, design and sewing is more than welcome
Anyway – thanks all – hope you enjoyed the day and take care on the roads home.
Been busy in the shop – trying to combat Ye Olde Jack Frost, preparing for Saturday and finishing all the (late) Christmas commissions.
I have prevailed somewhat in that I have beaten numbed fingers and I have now finished all the outstanding commissions; and before you tell me that Christmas passed by several weeks ago, my deadline is tomorrow!!!.
But, I do not have it all sewn up (to coin a phrase).
Now for the hard part and get ready for this coming Saturday…..
Quilters from all over southern Snowdonia are threatening to descend on me and discuss setting up a new quilting bee for those in our part of Meirionnydd … some details here
So, if you too are prepared to brave the chill – come and join us at Bumble Bee Quilting – from experienced to novice – we’ll welcome you all equally on Sat 22-Jan-2011 at about 11 am
As some of you know, there are occasions when I am not quilting or attempting to run the house & business.
These times are indeed rare, but uplifting. This happens to be one of them – Corris Beer Festival – running from 17th until 20th Feb 2011 together with music from local bands.
As usual I shall be aiding and abetting with ministering to the cognoscenti from behind the bar, resplendent in costume, fulfilled with tea.
Should you be anywhere in southern Snowdonia in or around Corris – then join us at the Braich Goch Inn and sample some fine ales all the way from Somerset.
Details of this and previous Beer Festivals here
