20 year celebration evening – Monday 2 October
As you are all aware, next month’s October 2nd meeting will be our twenty-year celebration with a meal followed by a talk from Jennie Rayment. The meal will be served at 6.30 pm in the Assembly Room and the talk will start at 8.15 pm. in the Mountford Room. Those who are coming to the meal should bring their named ticket with them as they will be used as raffle tickets.
Those ladies, and visitors, who wish to attend the talk and who are not coming to the meal are asked to arrive at 8.00 for Jennie’s talk.
Jennie will be doing a workshop on Saturday 7th October. The title of the workshop is Twirling Stars, and the cost is £25. There are some pictures of this workshop on Jennie’s web site. Jennie describes this workshop as:- Intriguing yet simple design from squares and rectangles. Play with shape and form then roll and fold to create a delightful textured starry block. Make one with a scalloped border embellished with Trumpets or go large and make four with or without a scalloped Trumpet border. For quilts. cushions, wallhangings and bags, this new class from Foldy Rolly Patchwork Pzzazz is a wow. Ideal for all abilities. It’s a tactile twiddle for fiddly fingers! Please sign up if you would like to join this workshop.
For those taking part in Jennie’s workshop, please note that this will be held in the Assembly Rooms at the Community Centre.

A reminder to all members that we have a roll of Hobbs Heirloom 90″ wide for sale at £6.00 yard – please let Pauline or Lis know your requirements so that it can be cut and brought to the next monthly meeting.
