Placemats for Meals on Wheels
For the last several years we have been making placemats for Meals on Wheels to give to their clients with their Christmas meals.  We are hoping that all members will contribute at least one placemat.  Some members are participating in the "Placemat Colour Challenge" and while we encourage members to do this, it is not necessary.  You can make a placemat with any fabric and in any style that you wish.  For inspiration here are some photos of placemats that were donated in previous years.


Apples for the Foodbank
Hip hip hooray-we donated 74lbs of apples in October !!!
