Webs and Wheels is on Monday

Don't forget that it's our Webs and Wheels session this Monday, the 14th of May, at the Friends Meeting house in Cotteridge at 7:30pm.

Janet will be teaching us all some lovely handstitches, and she has asked you to bring the following items:

  • Backing Fabric – Any colour to tone with your choice of threads, cotton or linen preferred. Any size from 6 inches square to A 4 size.
  • Embroidery Hoop or support fabric e.g. thin felt or pound shop dusters.
  • Paper and pencil to sketch ideas

If you've been wanting to do embroidery for a while, but didn't know where to start, this would be a good session to come to. If you don't have the things on the list, don't worry - just come along - often members bring spares and we're happy to share!

See you on Monday!
