Fall into Winter

Its December and we are turning our thoughts from the colourful Fall season to Winter activities.  Cooler weather and the upcoming Christmas season usually means, more weaving, spinning and other crafts.

The DCWS Guild members recognized the Fall season with a 'surprise challenge'.  Groups were given a brown bag containing items relating to the colours of fall and were asked to collaborate on creating something from the contents. Most brown bags contained fabric and below are some pictures of the fabulous results.

The Show & Tell table at the December 1st meeting was full of inspirational projects.  Here are a few for your interest and delight.
