Wednesday 8th November 

Sew Creative , Wroxham Barns.

10.15 am - 3.30  pm

If any of you now find yourselves free to come and sew at this Project Linus Norfolk sewing day.
Please contact me, Jane , for more details or if you wish to come. 
I have a couple of people who have had to drop out owing to family health problems, so there are some spaces going begging, it seems a shame not to make the full benefit of  Sew Creatives free use of their workshop.

Hope to hear from some of you soon.
