Christmas Capers – class report

Just when we thought we had experienced pretty much every hitch possible with regard to hiring a hall and turning it into a classroom for q day – we found a new one!  Arriving in good time for our Christmas Capers class we very quickly had to work out a whole new car park strategy, turning our two cars into a blockade to prevent everyone from driving and walking over thick black ice.  Fortunately we managed to get this done before anyone else arrived – phew!

It was a full house again for our last Saturday class of the year at Tittensor – and the end of fifteen years of Chris & Barbara Saturday classes.  Chris mapped out the plan for the day, did the cutting demo and conducted the first part of the proceedings in her best Big Voice and the cutting and capering began.  After much swapping and cutting and passing left and cutting and passing right and cutting everyone had a good selection of festive fabrics to work with.  Choosing blocks from several options on the worksheet it was then time to settle down to serious piecing.  Coffee, tea, biscuits, cake and mince pies were on hand to help concentration and in next to no time table runners and toppers were being produced…

So, despite the icy beginning, we all had a great time – lots of chat, lots of Show & Tell at lunch, and good company.  Our thanks to everyone who has supported the Saturday classes over the years – we are making lots of plans for 2016 and there just might be a one-day reunion class at Tittensor.  We’ll be sure to let you know!  In the next few posts we’ll look back at some of the quilts that have been made from the Saturday classes.  Stay tuned to this station for updates and further news.  Happy stitching!
