Today was set up day for all groups as well as 'sign in day', for Patchwork Group, so it was with a bit of a fluff and a flurry that the girls started to pour in to the Cottage to have our goodies for sale recorded and presented, there was a bit of oooing and ahhhing going on as we got sneak peaks on our fellow patchworkers lovley offerings.
Lots of small gifts, perfect for stocking stuffers or Teacher gifts
Folding Thread Catchers
The cutest little 'Tooth Fairy' pillows
Tiers of wonderful Sunhats for the kiddies, Pincushions, coasters and much more.
Tree Decorations and even a travel pillow.
Cushions galore
Christmas quilts, bed quilts, lap quilts
Bunting, Snap Bags and Tote bags
A pile of really terrific aprons, Karen modeled one for us and Sue gave us a bit of a handwipeing demo...
The last little sneak peak to share is this beautiful sewing box, what a wonderful gift for someone special, or indeed for yourself
By this stage it was getting a bit crowded with all those goodies, so off for a bit of a sit down and a chin wag, Sue created another two of her circles, think Suffolk puffs without the puff.
as you see, wiping the sweat from the brow...these circles cannot be rushed you know.

Then it was time for the other Groups to start arriving for the set up, went to Fiber Arts section to see if there was a sneak peak of anything, found some great tees with a lovely dye job.
Lots of display manaquins and the windows beautifully decorated with two of the groups yearly challenges, Autumn leaves and spring flowers - fantastic window treatments.
The door swung open and there was the lovely Lyn, all reved up and ready to create another fantastic display of the Fiber Arts Group creations.

Potters had an eyecatching focal point to build their display around

Yarns and Fibers Group were sitting around, waiting for the 'lets go' whistle with bags and bags of wonderful goodies and hand knits.
Yep, it all promises to be another wonderfully successful Christmas Fair. Hope to see you there!
