The Luncheon Club is still popular among some DAG members who attend every Thursday at the Deaf Centre. We enjoy a delicious meal cooked by Janet Heal and her team, especially having a chat to catch up on the news and having a laugh with friends.

Sewing Class - Making The Wall Hanging "In bread we bring you Lord our body’s labour"

The wall hanging of the wheat crops is now finished. The work is all hand-sewn - what a wonderful achievement to have made this for our first large project!

Completed Wheat Banner

The design we chose was inspired by one of Joe Drummond’s creations – one of the stained-glass windows in the chapel, shown here in the photograph on the left.

The banner of the wheat crops shown here on the right is almost identical to the stained-glass window.

In bread we bring you Lord our body’s labour.

Presenting Sarah with a bouquet

The sewing class and Marie Callender presented the tutor, Sarah Hall, with a beautiful bouquet of flowers from all the students, to thank Sarah for her contribution and teaching on making the banner of the wheat crops.

The Sewing Class It was an exciting moment when we watched the banner being put up.

This photo shows the sewing class and their friends showing off the banner that they made at the Deaf Centre.

The banner is now hanging in its rightful place at the back of the chapel.
