Pat Testing is on for the 28th March

The meeting on the Tuesday 28th March will be for PAT Testing and carrying on with your own sewing.

We will have the Club's electrical items PAT tested.
 Please bring along any sewing machines you may wish to use at future workshops any where, to be PAT tested.
The testing is being carried out by David on behalf of Norfolk Quilters. I believe the cost is around £2.50 per item or a little more.

Please pass the  word round as I wouldn't want anyone to miss out. I know you all check the blog regularly for any updates or information.

Please watch out for further information. 

There was enough interest for a Fabric box workshop with Maurice, so this is being followed up.

Suzanna offered some ideas for workshops, there were several people interested in making a Splat Cat.

Our next meeting on Tuesday 28th March, will either be PAT Testing of sewing machines & the group's equipment, if I am able to arrange it. If not it will be an Easter Surprise make.
