Needlework Group

Needlework Group
This group started when a very small group of ladies met to discuss their work, exchange patterns and generally pass on helpful tips. There are now 8 regular members who meet about twice a month.

At the November 2006 meeting we sold Christmas cards. Here you can see just a small selection of what was on offer.

2006 Christmas Cards

Needlework Banner

In the past two years we have completed a tapestry banner, composed of squares depicting the diverse groups of High Lane U3A and a calendar represented by flowers appropriate to each month.

We were asked to make an embroidered picture to be raffled on the High Lane Day on July 9th, organised by the Residents' Association, and one of our members completed this. We also exhibited some of our work.

We have had quite a lot of orders for special anniversary cards this summer but hope that the rush is now over, so we can concentrate on Christmas Cards.

As well as meeting regularly at each others' houses we enjoy having outings e.g. to Bakewell to the Embroidery shop there and to the Handicrafts Exhibition at G-Mex.
Anyone wishing to join us can contact me at w.brookes1@ntlworld.com 
We meet on Thursday mornings about twice a month.
