Regional Day 2018

Sunday May 13th 2018
Doors Open 10.0am - Welcome at 11.00am
Afternoon Lecture 2.00 pm
Tea and Cakes at end of day 4pm

For the last few years we have held our Regional Day at The Becket School, West Bridgford, Nottingham; this is a venue central to the Region providing good space and on-site Parking. We will be using it again in 2018.

We were for the first time in 2017 able to utilize most of the Atrium in the Becket School, and so are planning to expand the variety of Traders, Demonstrations and Stalls.
Suggestions as to local Groups who might be willing to come and share their skills would be welcome.

Volunteers to offer Taster Sessions would also be welcome.
Do you have a particular skill you could share?  If so please contact Pam Keeling -

The Madeira Lecture in the afternoon at 2.00 is to be by Sue Stone -

Competition: "Personal Memories of Stitch" - to be received by 10.30 on the day
