West Bridgford, NG2 7QY

Doors Open 10.0am - Welcome at 11.00am
Afternoon Lecture 2.00 pm

The School is close to M1 and is on a regular bus route from Nottingham railway Station and Tram Terminus at Station Street. Click here to find a map.

The Madeira Lecture in the afternoon is by
Magie Relph from the African Fabric Shop -

"Big is Beautiful: African Costume and Clothing."

This looks like being quite different as she is planning to Model some of her collection of African Clothing on willing members of the Guild - we already have two volunteers!

Magie Relph's textile interpretations of clothing from several African countries.

Another excellent and enjoyable day for all those who come.   Lots to see,  lots to buy, skills to learn and, of course, friends to chat to.   Not just for members - non-members are most welcome to come and join us for the day.

Traders, Displays and Taster Sessions for 2019 are being sourced already, but any suggestions or volunteers would be most welcome - particularly displays you think members might find interesting.

West Bridgford have again agreed to provide the refreshments - looking forward to the cakes already!
Free Tea and Coffee is available all day, but please bring your own packed Lunch and Cup or Mug.
