December 2020

Dear All

Here is Linsey’s poster for 12th December. As you can see, there has been a change to our scheduled speaker but we hope to meet Liz Tapper in the future.  Instead we are very excited to welcome Clare Hunter for the afternoon session.  There will be a Q&A session after her presentation so have your questions ready. This session will not be recorded.

Our usual Christmas activity will take place in the morning form 10 am to 1pm followed by a lunch break before the afternoon session at 2pm.

Diane will be demonstrating the “All the Trimmings” Christmas tree ornament as seen in October’s edition of the Stitch magazine. This will be a social hand stitching session to which you are all invited for free. Wear your Christmas jumpers and have some seasonal nibbles nearby. We can still celebrate together digitally! We will forward the requirements list soon.

Lockdown Booklet

Dallas has kindly offered to put together this booklet for us to share our projects completed or started during lockdown. We usually admire your work when it is displayed on the stage and have missed out on this.  So please send Dallas a few photos with a short description of your projects by 12th December.

She will be so pleased to receive them and us too when we share the booklet later.

Recommended book:

Our new WhatsApp group is gaining ground. Please let me know your mobile number if you wish to be added.

Dallas recommended this book that she recently received and I have already added it to my Santa list!   Take a look at WOW book 6 here

Carol still has some 2020 Vision “eyes” available for embroidering. If you would like one please let me know. You can see some completed ones here

If you missed Wendy Dolan with her workshop “Architecture” then you may wish to take up an invitation from Enfield EG to join their workshop on 30th January. Details here

Next Stitch and Chat 9th December at 2 pm. See earlier email for Zoom link.

The committee are meeting tomorrow so if you have any topics that you would like raised then do contact me.

Well I think that’s it for now.

Stay safe everyone.

Happy Sewing!
