Don't forget that our speaker, Nikki Parmenter, will be starting her talk at 7pm next Monday, 11th.
Refreshments, raffle, sales table etc will be done after Nikki has finished so she can get away at a reasonable time to travel home to Cheshire.

Out and about - Living in a Bacterial world
Last week Heather was in Oxford and while there visited the Bacterial World exhibition at the Natural History Museum. As an experiment, personal items such as keys, coins and jewellery belonging to earlier visitors had been pressed onto agar plates in Petrie dishes and then grown in a laboratory environment. In a fascinating (and unusual) fusion of science and art, the resulting colonies were then printed and transformed into crochet pieces by artist Elin Thomas. The artworks are on display until 28 May 2019. Thank you to Heather for the photos.
