Our Last Event of the Year

In December, we had our last event of 2017.  It's an event that is very much looked forward to all year long.  Our Christmas Party where we showcase what we have accomplished during the year.  Everyone brings their finishes for the year and we get to ooh and aah and be inspired.

Our day started off with a luncheon at Ted's Montana Grill.  There was talk of the holiday season, family, work and of course a lot of talk about our beloved needlework.

After lunch, we went back to our regular meeting spot and set up our show and tell tables with our needlework we brought to share.  
Each member got a chance to show what they worked on during the year and talk about any particular challenges or learnings.

We then had our annual gift exchange which is an exchange of a stitched gift.
Here are a few projects shared:

Everyone looks forward to the drawing for the WIP Challenge winner.  This year Susan won.  Susan lives in Pennsylvania so Melody gave her a call and put her on speaker phone so we could congratulate her!  She actually answered the phone and the room cheered for her.  Congratulations Susan!
duClay had an amazing 2017 and our Christmas Luncheon is always a great way to end the year.  With our stitching sisters and friends who share our love of needlework.  The photos we've shared today are just a small portion of the photos taken.  Please visit our Flickr Album for this event to see everyones projects.  We really do have an amazing group of stitchers as our members!
