Embroidery: Next meeting Friday 24th November. 10am at MS Centre in West Parley


Hello fellow stitchers,

Due to the closure of the WCE, we are wondering if most of you would like to carry on anyway, under another name?

We would have no background organisation as such, but could meet as an informal 'Meet and Stitch' group, or a 'Stitch to Enrich' group, share our skills and ideas, generally keep in touch.

Having found such a nice venue it seems a shame not to carry on!

Whatever happens, it is important to meet on Friday 24th November, to further decide our future plans. It really is most important to hear what all of you want, going forwards.

We do have money in the bank so there will be no need at present for any new subscriptions to be approved. We will need to decide what should happen to our resources in store and remaining funds.

We thought that we could enjoy a bring and share lunch together.

Best wishes,

Janet and Linda
