Our New Group

The Jimboomba Quilters and Stitchers Group began on the 4th June after the closure of our local craft shop and is now going very well with appox 35 members already and each week we about 20 girls attend which is great. We celebrated our first Christmas in July last monday and it was terrific, we had started a secret santa swap at the beginning of the year (whilst still at the craft shop) with 12 girls so we opened our gifts at our party, it was so much fun. I started a new swap for the next part of the year and we now have 20 girls involved so hope it goes well. Everyone brought a plate of food for the day so we eating took up most of the day as well as much laughing and chatting.... of course. As the piccies show a great was day had by all, I had to play santa which was a bit embarassing but whats a christmas party without santa.
