February Meeting

This is a photo of some of our members with a few bits of work and our embroidered tablecloth in front of them.  We hope to get this picture into the newspaper in a couple of weeks time to advertise our exhibition (see below). 
A big thanks to all the members who have volunteered to either help at the exhibition or to provide cakes for the refreshments or both.  All we need now is your work to show! 
We had an interesting talk by Veronica Hartley about the making of hats.  She has her own business called 'Dottie Hats' and after giving us a brief history of headwear, she then talked us through how she designed and made hats.
We have got a possible interest in a trip to Bombay Stores later this year (we are all suffering silk withdrawal symptons) and we thought we might continue it at Salt's Mill, so that could be something to look forward to when the weather gets better.
