Next weekend (28 Nov. – 1 Dec. ’19) is the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching show and some of our members are getting ready to attend for some retail therapy.

We have taken a tree at the Dumfries & District Flower Club’s collaboration with the Church of St, John the Evangelist in Newall Terrace, Dumfries, and the production of a “Heavenly Host” to decorate it, is progressing apace. Last date to submit your contribution, is 28th November. The trees will be open for inspection by the public on Thursday, 5 December from 2 – 9 pm, Fri./Sat. 6/7 Dec. at  10 am – 9 pm, Sun. 8 December at 2 – 4 pm. Adult admission: £4.00, children: free.

Our Christmas meal will follow on 5 December at the Mabie House Hotel (12:00 for 12:30) and the speaker will be the Revd. David Bartholomew, who was involved with the discovery of the Galloway Hoard – the inspiration behind the group project that was unveiled at the Scottish Regional day earlier this year. Members are reminded that the Christmas challenge is to produce a 65cm square floor cushion on the theme of children’s stories and nursery rhymes. Take care not to infringe on any illustrative copyright! These cushions will be donated to Moat Brae National Centre for Children’s Literature.
