NIGFAS AGM Saturday 6th October 2019

Coral Gardiner NAFAS National Judge with one of her designs

WoW!!!! What an amazing day we had at the NIGFAS AGM.
Great show bench with wonderfully interpretive designs to give our Judge
Christine Picton plenty to think about.
An exciting Demonstration by Coral Gardiner but definitely had the WoW factor as far as the designs were concerned but also had the WoW factor as far as entertainment was concerned.
We had a lovely lunch from new caterers and the AGM had good reports - none of them very long.
Thanks to everyone that came. If you weren't there you missed a really good day.
