Visit to Andover and Whitchurch 2015

We had a lovely sunny day for our trip to Whitchurch Silk Mill on 3rd July. We stopped in Andover for a visit to New Threads, followed by a lovely lunch at the
Chalk Hill Blue pub nearby. We then went onto the Silk Mill, where we
had a private tour and looked at some of the machines in action. It
was an enjoyable and interesting day for many of the members. Here are a few photos of the trip:

Making Linus quilts during 2015

The Linus Project is an international group that gives a sense of security and comfort to sick and traumatised babies, children and teenagers by providing new home made patchwork quilts and knitted/crocheted blankets. We regularly make quilts for local care institutions. 

Below are some photos of a selection of completed linus quilts given to Ann Pike, the co-ordinator for the Linus project in our area on May 26th, plus one in the making.
