So here it is, Merry Xmas. Everybody`s having fun. Look to the future now. It`s only just begun.

On a serious note this can also be a very difficult and painful time for all  sufferers. If you have any experiences or tips you`d like to share just add it via the blog or the Facebook page.

We need to say a big thank you to Paul and his Iris folding at the last meeting.

It was enjoyed by all and everyone got their own handmade card to take home. Hopefully in the future Paul would be kind enough to do it again.

If you have a hobby or craft you would like to share with the group, please get in touch. We are always looking for new idea`s to add to our meetings.
