Just want to say a big thank you to Margaret & John for making us all feel so welcome. They looked after us all, so well at the afternoon tea they hosted. 
Everyone enjoyed themselves and were asking who is going to put on the next one, but you both  made it a difficult act to follow.

I have a suggestion( this will see who reads the blog!) How about afternoon tea at Broom Hall in August/September, I believe the cost is about £7.50.
email me if you are interested.

I dropped off my contributions to Lesley yesterday, for the stall she is organising for Project Linus Norfolk. I heard several of you have donated similarly.
If you have not yet, it's not to late ! You have today and Saturday to get donated items for the Tombola to Lesley, if you wish to donate and support Project Linus and Lesley,as the event is on Sunday!

Afternoon Tea 

and other information.

There is no meeting on the evening of Tuesday 25th July, as Margaret Herbert has kindly invited us to her garden for Afternoon Tea at 2.30 pm on that date.

Most of you have put your name to the list, circulated at recent meetings, saying whether you were able to attend and what you would like to contribute towards the tea.

If any one has not put their name on the list and wishes to attend, please would you contact Margaret and let her know asap. Likewise if for some unfortunate reason you are no longer able to attend, please let Margaret know.

Thank you so much Margaret for inviting us to your home for this lovely event.

Margaret's contact details may be found on the new contact list I circulated to you all recently.
( There is one amendment to be made to this list, Lesley's email address needs .com added to it to correct it.)

Other news.

Thank you Pat for the workshop you gave for those lucky enough to be able to attend. I've been reliable informed that it was very enjoyable.

If any one else has any more tombola prizes or other items for Lesley for the Project Linus Norfolk stall on Sunday 30th July at Watton Sports Centre, please contact Lesley to make arrangements to give them to her. Thank you Lesley for doing this, greatly appreciated.

At the moment, we still need 2 people to be on the Project Linus  Norfolk stand at the Wayland Show on Sunday 6th August in the afternoon. 
If anyone is able to help please let me ( Jane) know. You will have a free entry ticket for the show, so you may attend the show itself and look round in the morning!
Thank you to Pat and Brenda H. for covering the morning, greatly appreciated.

There are no meetings in August, so the next meeting will be on Tuesday 12th September, 7 pm at the usual place.

In case you may not be going to the afternoon tea, kindly hosted by Margaret.
Have a lovely summer break in August.

Meeting on the 11th July

For those of you hoping to enter items or Project Linus Quilts in the Wayland Show, I'm not sure if your entries will be collected on that night as the lady I need to speak to is not back from holiday until Monday. 

You may wish to bring your entries anyway.
Please put them in a named bag, with a list of contents, your name attached with a safety pin to each item and entry form completed with entry money.

The meeting on the 25th July is our Afternoon Tea.

Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday evening.
