Festive Exchange.
December 2018

Each December the Guild sets up a folder for members to upload Christmas Greetings and also arrange a themed Festive Exchange. This year the theme was to make a coaster and members who wish to join in are paired with another member so they can create a coaster for each other. Photos of these are then shared with the wider membership and added to the Christmas Greetings album.
