The group meets regularly once a
month on Thursdays at 42 Bowfell Drive, but more often at busy times of
the year when we are preparing for a sale of cards and other gifts.
There are 8 in the group, most of whom do cross stitch but some prefer
tapestry, embroidery on painted silk and other crafts.
Anyone wishing to join us can contact me at email@example.com
We have sales of cards about twice a year and with the proceeds we
are able to buy more materials for future sales. We also make special
cards for special occasions but for these we require a month's notice.
Twice a year we visit the Stitch and Creative Crafts Show in the
Manchester G-Mex to buy materials and get some ideas for future
The Needlework group visited
the Stitch and Creative Crafts
show at G-Mex on Friday 4th September.
The Needlework group will be having a
Christmas card sale at the November General Meeting.
We also plan to have a raffle for items made by members of
the group. From time to time we are given unfinished work which can
sometimes be completed. Recently
we received a piece of tapestry which Lottie Minchin has made into a
very attractive cushion. This will be the main prize but there
will also be a variety of other prizes which will make good Christmas
presents. The proceeds from the raffle will go to charity so we
do hope you will support us as generously as in the past.
