A Letter from the Committee

Hi everyone,

Thank you to all that came to the first meeting of Layers of Stitch at the new venue of Grantham Tennis club. What a fabulous day we had. Two new long-term projects were successfully started and many of us sampled the delicious lunches on offer at the Rainbow café run in aid of and by Mencap.  Our afternoon sessions at meetings will be time to continue with, and share, the travelling books and stitching journals so don’t forget to bring your work.
The beautiful banner was displayed in the afternoon. I’m sure you will all agree that it is a gorgeous example of group work and was arranged superbly by our Chairperson Kate Pike. Thanks go to the ladies who helped to put it together. I look forward to it being displayed around the area as a celebration of our group. It will undoubtedly be admired throughout the Embroiderers’ Guild.
We were also visited by Sue Rowland who shared her WW1 project, the sweetheart pincushion themed bunting. Christine, who works at Grantham museum, will be at the next meeting to collect finished hearts from those of you who have chosen to make one.

Our next meeting is 3rd February. We would like you to wear a name badge so we can all get to know each other by name.  A little project you might like to work on. If you don’t have one that’s ok but we will label you as you come in! There will also be a bring and buy table so if you have any stitching treasures you don’t want or don’t need anymore then please donate to the sale table. Proceeds will help the group to finance our future projects.
It would be helpful if you order lunch in the main building if you want to eat there before coming over to the workroom at the next meeting.

Can we take this opportunity to ask that, if you have any comments about the new venue or the group, you email them to the address above ?
On behalf of the committee, can we thank you all for your support during the move to the tennis club and we look forward to a great future of stitching at Layers of Stitch.
