Pipkins with Pat Gibson – December 14th 2013.

What a lovely ending to our year with Pat showing us how to make a Pipkin. As usual Pat had crossed all the t’s and dotted all of the i’s with delicious samples, an excellent demonstration along with patterns and a written recipe. You may be asking just what is a Pipkin? Well, it is a delightful small container that can be used to hold anything from a thimble to threads, a small gift, a chocolate, jewellery or may be your small change. When completed you simply hold the top and the bottom of the Pipkin, simply squeeze to open to expose whatever treasure has been placed inside. During the meeting we were also treated to a lovely exhibition of items that had been completed during 2013. The meeting today was just what everyone needed as it gave us all a break from the stress and preparation of Christmas.
