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 on Thursday mornings about twice a month.

Needlework BannerThe group has 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 recently raffled a kitchen sampler which we had received in an unfinished state from the Cancer Research shop in Marple and which Margaret McDermott completed. The sampler was won by Margaret McCleod. The proceeds of the raffle - £66.50 -  were donated to Cancer Research.

We have had quite a lot of orders for special anniversary 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.
