The October meeting was the deadline for our Chairman's Challenge, which this year had the title, "Forgotten Halifax".
There were 6 entries, all brilliant and completely different from one another! We voted for our favourite with "small change", which was then donated to the Maurice Jagger Centre where we hold our meetings.
Here are the photos of the entries - apologies for the reflections on those which are behind glass.
This unusual perspective of the Piece Hall stairs is by Maureen
Vanessa came third with her montage
including references to the town's sweet past
Margaret was in second place
with her personal history attached to a shuttle.
The well-deserved winner was Janice,
with her depiction of a factory girl at her loom.
First prize was £30 so it's well worth entering!
Next up are the completed "Crazy Creatures". I've NEVER seen so many finished items - what a popular workshop that was, with Annie Lancaster!
...and one lonely caravan...
Finally, here are a selection of pages from our "Branch Book", which was the challenge set by our Regional Chairman Pauline, at last year's AGM.
Next year's challenge is to produce a piece of work that could be photographed and used on notelets that we could then sell to raise funds for the Region.
Thinking caps on!
