December 2014


As another year draws to a close, we held our annual exhibition of members’ work, with sales provided by Wendy Piper, and a demonstration of knitweave, which members were also able to practise.

The knitweave was demonstrated on the Brother and the Knitmaster machines:

Then we had the results of the competition. Members voted for their favourite item in a secret ballot.

The winner keeps the Long Buckby Trophy for 2015, and it was Brenda!

Brenda's entry was a cardigan and scarf combination.


Lynn was a close runner up with a jumper, which had a decorative border:

Other people described their entries, and all agreed it was hard to choose between them.


So in the end, everyone wished each other Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, as do we to all our members and friends.
