Catching up – 2022 so far

We started the new year on 8th January with our “Sew Saturday”. It was a pleasant day. 12 members turned up (bringing their own packed lunches). It was lovely to do something normal, but we missed Pat’s soup.

19th January 2022 – at our first Wednesday meeting of the year we had a sit and sew and part 1 of our “Easter Challenge” was handed out.

2nd February 2022 – we had a talk from Zoe Acketts of Paint-Box Threads at Bircher with 25-30 in attendance. Zoe was full of enthusiasm for dyeing and weaving. She gave an interesting insight into weaving and setting up her thread dyeing business.

16th February 2022 – the AGM was followed by a mini workshop to make name badges that can be worn to meetings to help everyone get to know each other. Part 2 of our “Easter Challenge” was handed out.

2nd March 2022 – should have been Karen Perry talking to us about Fiddle Quilts (memory quilts for those suffering from dementia). Unfortunately she had to cancel at the last minute so we had a sit, sew and chat evening.
