A meeting was held recently to discuss the possibility of starting a Stitch and Chatter group at the Church.

An interesting range of ideas emerged.

Members of the group could, for example, initially explore stitches based on those used in the Quaker Tapestries.

We could then go on to use the same stitches to create small, individual embroideries reflecting the lovely carvings at the ends of the pews which could be made into bunting and displayed at events held by The Friends.

Others may prefer to bring along their own project. Those who have little experience of stitching may enjoy learning how to make a rag rug. 

Mel has calico, wools, threads, needles, water soluble pens and a stitch book.

So, we have ideas and equipment. 

Why not make a New Year's resolution? .... to learn new skills or enhance your existing skills.

Whatever your skills, you'd be very welcome.

Members will be invited to make a contribution to any materials used. There will be a donation of £2 per week, £1 for tea, coffee and biscuits and £1 to the Church towards the heating and lighting.

Meeting fortnightly in the New Year from Friday 24th January 2020 10.00 -12.00 at the Church.
