September Meeting

Our President made a visit to bequeath her Cosby Brooch to Alice Screaton. It was lovely to see Joan as she is not always able to make it.

The Talk was amazing. Anne bought her very inspiring work, and told us how her journey  got to the work that she now does. The workshop on Thursday was just as amazing. 14 of us were there and we made tealight houses using Anne's wonderful hand dyed fabrics. Everyone went home with the houses mostly finished, and some of us purchased more fabric to take home and make more. A great day was had by all.

Hope to see you in October with your show and tell and lots of Xmas work to exhibit at The Big Textile Show.
