Stitch clubs

We also have Saturday meetings, 10.00-15.00, once a month - Oct to July, when one member will teach other members.  Topics planned for 2014-2015 include:

Chicken Scratch,

Christmas Bunnies,


Seashore Embroidery,

Block-printing with Polystyrene,

Machine-made Lace Bowls,

Reverse Appliqué, and

Making a Triangular Box.
As a new departure in 2015, members who enjoy the company and a good chat while stitching, but don't particularly want to take part in the advertised topic are welcome to bring along their own Work In Progress and continue with that instead.
