Preparation for the Stitching, Sewing and Hobbycrafts show at Excel in April
We are producing a large map for this show. I will not spoil the surprise but here are a couple of clues! A huge thank you to Linsey for organising us and preparing all the materials.
Many of our members are preparing their competition pieces for our own Chairman’s Cup on July 8th entitled A Hint Of Silver and the regional competition Blowing in the Wind on July 15th. More details here.

This is an on-going project for all members to join in. “Inchies” (or even “two-inchies” for more scope) – are small pieces of work that are worked on individually without any commitment and brought to meetings to be put together into a main “picture”, possibly working towards one piece (an eventual exhibition piece?) or smaller separate pieces which could also be used for an exhibition, for members to keep.
Dallas is leading this branch project with A5 books. We made a start at the January workshop.
We have formed into groups of five (by lucky dip). Each person chooses a theme of work. A member starts a book and decorates a page according to her theme. She then brings it to the next branch meeting, and passes the book to the next person in her group. Then that person decorates the next page in the book that she has been given, and passes it on again at the following meeting.
At the end of the project the books will have “travelled” around the group. Each person will have a beautiful book, decorated by five members, to keep.
