December Guild Meeting - We were greeted with a handy gift in a bag full of opportunity. 'Jeannie in Red' was hostess to a program of games & prizes. (A few members are amazing at finding words). The Raffle prize draws were officiated & a cheque presented to Can:Do 4Kids. Megan spoke a little about the work of this deserving organisation. A few notices, some lovely 'Show & Tell' being class items finished, quilts made with love for others, a fascinating look at amazing hand made textiles from Guatemala (courtesy of Pam) & it was time for a Festive Supper. Thanks to the Committee for their organisation of the evening - at the close of a year of change & challenges it was wonderful to see 190 people enjoying each other's company. Each member is part of what makes our Guild great. Happy Christmas Everyone.
