Tonight's Meeting

Please remember to bring your diaries for finding a suitable date, for the majority, who wish to go to Broom Hall (£8.50 per person) for afternoon tea in the last week in November.

Tonight, Jan is showing us how to make the removable bag organisers, so please bring the requirements, listed previously and the usual sewing equipment, matching thread and sewing machines if you wish to start making them tonight!

A big thank you to Pat for organising the trip to the Fabric Guild, for Project Linus Norfolk.
The coach, I am sure you agree with me, was very comfortable, we were well looked after by the coach driver and by Euroview Coaches.

Looking forward to seeing you all tonight.
