September 2020

Hello Everyone,

Oh dear, the rule of 6 prevents us from meeting up at the hall but it is thanks to Carol working hard behind the scenes that we will be able to continue welcoming speakers and to hold our first workshop via Zoom.

It was lovely to catch up with some of you in the park today.  This gave us the opportunity to pass over the sewn rainbow arcs to Linsey and to admire the 2020 Vision bunting that Carol has strung together. We also used this time to present Helen with a bouquet of flowers as a token of thanks form us all. Helen is stepping down from the committee having dedicated seven years as treasurer and welfare officer and deserves a rest.

Coming up this month:

Meeting- October 10th.  2pm.  Emily Jo Gibbs will join us online to present “The Value of Making”. You can see samples of her work here.

We will hold our AGM after this presentation.  To keep this as short as possible, we ask that you read the attached documents prior to the meeting and have any questions ready to hand or email them into us beforehand. We will ask you to vote by raising your hands.

A Zoom link has been emailed to our members.

Workshop- October 17th !0 am to 4 pm.  Wendy Dolan “Architecture”- machine embroidery. This is an interactive workshop on Zoom where Wendy will demonstrate in stages allowing us breaks in-between to do our machining. Wendy will be available throughout to answer questions.

Plan ahead, book now:

Workshop- November 21st 10am to 4pm. Anne Kelly. “House and Home” hand embroidery.

We will be able to remain online throughout to chat whilst stitching – to simulate a physical workshop. Anne will check in with us periodically throughout the day to inspire and instruct us.

Well that’s it for now. Hope to see as many of you as possible on 1oth October.

Stay safe

Happy Sewing!
