Welcome and a special welcome to our guest speaker Richard Box we are all looking forward to hearing from you.
I am keeping the general notices brief tonight as you also have to take away notes about our exhibition in April and about our next meeting.
For those who are taking part tonight is the first time we swap Travelling Books let Meriel know if there are any problems. Don’t forget Stitch of the Quarter is chain stitch.
Branch exhibition at Artrix in Bromsgrove from 24th April this year to 22nd May. See the separate sheets for more information
Next year’s programme is available. If you haven’t already got a copy please pick one up. Don’t forget Day Schools and sign up with Margaret if you fancy attending a day. June 24th is Textile Art with Mikala Gyetvai. Hopefully everyone who had signed up will have already been told that Nicola Jarvis has let us down so the March work shop is cancelled. Our apologies but not our fault, to make up for this we have a booking instead at Cotteridge on 27th May when Anne Haigh will lead a Canvas Work Day this will be at a reduced cost of around £15 as Anne is being very generous with her time. Requirements list will be at the March meeting. Please start to sign up tonight.
March raffle colour is yellow
We continue to meet at the Library first Saturday of the month and will be there on March 4th Do join us if you can; we have a lovely time when there.
We have had some donations for the Sales table. The next Sales table will be at the March meeting so come prepared with cash and anything you want to donate.
Don’t forget Show and Share every month. It was great at the last meeting, so hope that continues.
We have had a message from the Guild about an appeal for donations to support the move of the collection to its new home. We will be discussing this as a committee in a couple of weeks. Please get in touch with one of the committee if you have any thoughts about this.
The March meeting is a stitching activity, Tea-Flora-Tales which you may remember was mentioned by Cas Holmes at the Regional Day. See over the page for more details, please come to the March meeting with your sewing kit and bits and pieces you want to include.
Bernadette Wilkinson on behalf of the committee.
