March Meeting

A bitterly cold day but thankfully no snow.  We had a members day today and sixteen people braved the cold to bring their work and chat.  We all brought 'Something I have had for years and don't know what to do with' which got everyone talking together and sorting out each others problems.  One thing that did emerge was that several people owned lutradur and hadn't used it so next month we are having a mini workshop making small samples using lutradur and other mediums. 

The Kathleen Laurel Sage workshops on the 9th and 10th May have gone very well although we do still have a few places left on the Stumpwork day on Friday the 10th at a cost of £30 if anyone is interested.

Some members will be attending workshops with Kathy Selwood learning all about the sewing machine, getting the tension right and using different needles etc.  We have also had interest in an outing to the Bowes Museum so we hope to get that under way in July.We are all set for a busy year ahead, we just need the weather to warm up and encourage us.
