May Practical Evening

Firstly some errors need to be corrected on your Programmes for this year.  The dates for the meetings are all correct but unfortunately you will need to alter the dates for the workshops.  The date for the Monkey Buttons Workshop is 5th September not the 4th and the date for Pat Ashton Smith is Tuesday 1st October not the 3rd October.

On the practical evening we have three projects for you to try.  The first is a felted egg (picture to follow).  The second is making bookmarks or cards that involves the prick and stitch method for embroidering cards, using metalic thread.  See example

The third project is paper craft, making either a simple box or a box with roses on the top.  There will be a charge of £1 for each project. The money will be going to charity.

If you wish you can bring your own project to do and enjoy chatting with your friends.

April Meeting

We had an enjoyable evening with Edwina Mackinnon whilst she told us about her life so far.  Her quilts showed that she had tried lots of different techniques whilst she has been quilting.  Some examples are shown below.
