Jan, our lovely caretaker has retired. We were pleased to thank her with a gift to buy something for her new home and a quilt (thanks to Anne who happened to be finishing a quilt at the meeting!).



Gail Lawther workshop - This proved to be a great success and we had a great display of finished wall hangings for show and tell. Bring any we haven’t seen along to the meeting. There was so much enthusiasm for another workshop that we have contacted Gail to see if we can arrange a workshop towards the end of next year. Watch this space!
