Festive Greetings
December 2017

In 2017, the Festive Exchange was replaced by the Festive Greetings. To celebrate the season and its festivities, all members were invited to make a card, small keepsake or a Christmas tree decoration. Created in their choice of fibre, colour and technique, when it was finished, a photograph was taken and posted to the Festive album for everyone to enjoy before it was kept or given to someone special.

Season's Greetings from Pat Griffiths from Ceredigion, Mid Wales
The card paper was made in Summer school and the design needle woven and stitched, which reminded me of the sewing cards of my childhood, where you stitched through holes to make pictures.
