yesterday our craft co-op got together for our christmas potluck party. it was to be hosted at barb's, but that fell through. so it was at my house instead. there were 10 of us - joan and molly from woody point and urve and shannon from gillams and the rest from corner brook - so a great turnout in spite of the snowy day.(we missed barb and niki and robyn). we had exchanged names at our last meeting in oct. and everyone made a gift for the name they drew. lovely gifts - those are glass buttons from urve to shannon in the photo - and a wonderful potluck feast. we try to keep our gatherings a little structered but this was more of a celebration (although we did get a "report" from brenda about her participation at the "one -of-a-kind-show" in toronto and from urve about her trip to iceland with the newfoundland small business trade mission). our group is young and growing. it's an important part of our lives. everyone working seriously with their craft and knowing there is local support.
