Branch officers are: Chairman - Brian Porter, Treasurer - Pat Gauntlett, Secretary - Sandra Snaddon.
The Northern Branch held our Christmas meeting to the 30 November, to avoid the bad weather problems of last year.
The meeting started with Sandra holding a small design exercise to allow time for Brian (who had not been feeling too good) to arrive, in case he was well enough to travel. Members were asked to design a Guild logo. Some interesting designs were produced.
Then followed the general meeting, after which we had lunch and general chat.
During lunch everyone was asked to vote for the design they liked in the Christmas design competition. 4 designs were entered and Junko won the prize.
Dawn entertained us in the afternoon with showing us all how to make a very clever little presentation box. Great fun was had cutting and bending the card in the right way, Dawn was very patient with us all and gave us very clear directions. In the end we all had a lovely box with a clever way of opening. Dawn gave us all the instructions and design info, in case we would like to make some more at home. Many thanks were given to her for entertaining us so well.
As we had a little bit of time in hand, Sandra held a ‘glass’ orientated quiz, pairing members to help getting the answers. Most of the answers were found, after small hints from Sandra.
A very enjoyable day was had by all and the meeting ended at 4pm.
We always welcome visitors to our branch meetings, which are held at the Church Hall, Patrick Brompton, Nr Bedale.
