June Meeting and taster for July

Margaret R really had us all “in knots” at this meeting. The stitches she demonstrated were Sorbello, French, Bullion, and others plus variations for each one. We also enjoyed trying out silk paints on Bondaweb which, when dry, was ironed onto fabric to provide a coloured background design for stitching.

We would also like to welcome Vicky Fleming as a new member and were also pleased to have Rebecca Connolly and Ian Donaldson as visitors this month.

It is with sadness we had to say good bye to our venue at Blackthorne Centre at this meeting, as it is being converted into business premises. In September 2009 ( there is no meeting in August) we are meeting at new for us premises in Cricklade. The United Reform Church Hall in Calcutt Street will be our new venue. As usual it will be the 2nd Tuesday of the month from 10am to 3pm.

For our July meeting at Lydiard Park, Anne Carter has kindly arranged for us to have the use of The Stable Room at Lydiard (next to the Church) and will also be organising refreshments for us at £1.00 each to cover the cost of tea/coffee and biscuits.Please bring your camera, sketchbook, drawing materials, etc. If possible, bring along some stitching that you have been doing at meetings to share ideas. Also, don’t forget a packed lunch. Click on the link in the sidebar for further information on Lydiard House. The raffle colour for July will be lilac.
