Knee Blankets for Elgar House 

This is just one of the many blankets made for Southmead Hospital and their co-ordinator Ruth Sidgwick (Arts Programme Manager) sent this photo to show it in situ and reported that the patients said how much they really appreciated them and how they made the ward feel much more homely.
Reindeers for Westonbirt 

The very talented needlework group have done it again, just look at the fabulous Reindeers created for the Westonbirt School Charity Christmas Fair held in October 2016.  The reindeers where hidden around the site for children and adults to have a fun treasure hunt and then some of them were used as prizes for the winners.  Of course they were a great success.

Each reindeer had a name, can you spot the very topical Cornish pair at the back.

Before Christmas an urgent appeal came from Southmead Hospital to make Teddies for the babies in the neonatal intensive care unit.  Once again the ladies were only too pleased to help with this project.
