Heya, Big Thank-You to all who supported us today - we managed it without melting AND knitted quite a few 'sweets' as we walked.  We didn't break any records (or drop any needles!) but think we have raised quite a bit of dosh.... there is still time to make a donation if you wish or, come to The Big Textile Show in Oadby and buy raffle tickets to win our fab prizes - all our proceeds to Cancer Research.  

 AND a HUGE thank-you to all the Stitchgirls of 2017!! xx

July Meeting

At  our July meeting Katie Chaplin from Japan Crafts treated us to a very informative talk on Japanese Textiles. Details of their construction especially weaving and dying  techniques were carefully explained.
Numerous examples of weaves and richly decorated fabrics were handed round as the talk progressed. We were amazed at their detail and fine threads.
Katie is a regular visitor to Japan and was able to relate fabrics to their origins as well as present day use. Beautiful Japanese fabrics and kits were available to tempt us to buy.

We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting in September.
