As members who were at the May meeting will know, we have purchased a set of the Colouricious Textile Workshops DVDs. These fabulous DVDs cover a wide range of topics, and provide easy to follow instructions to help you develop a new skill.
We will be bringing them along to the July session for members to borrow, with loan periods being two months. There will be a small charge of £1 per DVD, which will be put towards buying other interesting items for the library for future.

As we anticipate that these DVDs may be popular, we are only allowing each member to borrow one DVD in the first instance, and if more than one person wants to borrow one DVD, we'll randomly decide who can borrow it.
We will also be asking members to sign a small form to confirm that they will look after the DVDs, and return them on time - this will be brought to the session.
