Dear Chairmen and IT Reps

thanks for your assistance.


On behalf of Janet Corcoran (

Hi everyone, just a reminder that there is a workshop at Grantham Museum tomorrow to make a WW1 heart. Details are in the attachment.
With best wishes

Just a reminder that it is our March meeting on Tuesday. It is beginning to feel like Spring I think and the extra light is especially helpful for stitching. We are making coiled pots and details and requirements are on the blog but I have attached here for you too.
If you have booked for the Goldwork workshop with Brenda Scarman on the 21st Aprilpayment (by cheque please) is due at Tuesday's meeting. Payments for kits will be direct to Brenda on the day.  She is happy to be contacted by email should you have any

I have had a message from someone who is is moving house and has three embroidery frames to give away.  They are in very good condition but have not been used for some time.  One stands on the floor, another on a table, and the third is a frame without a stand. She is willing to deliver them to the meeting so if anyone is interested please let me know.
We are looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday

Coil Pots

Lorraine Appleton is  booked in to do coil pots for the March meeting.
She  will bring lots of examples and do a demo of the machine and hand technique.  

It's a recycling project so here is a short list of what people need to bring.This project works well if you have a colour scheme either different shades of the same colour or complementary colours
  • strips of thinnish silky fabrics (sari silk strips are perfect but need to be ironed) approx 1 inch wide, minimum length 12 inch
  • scrap embroidery threads in your chosen colours, perle and ordinary
  • Scrap purl (optional)
  • usual sewing kit
In addition you will need  3 supermarket carrier bags.

Sounds like an excellent example of a  recycling project.See you on the day.
