Hello Ladies

A good meeting last Tuesday; one of the quickest AGMs I have ever done, and don't forget to fill in questionnaires if you have something to say about how our EG branch is organised.

Jeanette Jackson's talk and presentation was most interesting, particularly as it showed that her textile work is her second (or was it third?) career, and her skills and inspiration are quite innovative. I personally would like to hear her talk about Japan, perhaps one for another year?

Another reminder about our exhibition - we are setting up the display on Tues./Weds., 15th/16th September from 10.00am each day, and have quite a few volunteers to help, and also to help on the Preview evening, Weds. 16th from 7.00pm. Others welcome, if you can spend a couple of hours or more with us.
We have some framed pictures which some people have brought in or promised for display - these will have to be hung on mirror plates to make sure that they are secure - if you object to yours having mirror plates screwed into them,  and being hung this way, then please contact Christine Robbins at the museum (remember, it is only open Thursday, Friday, Saturday each week) at: christinerobbins@  or telephone 01476 568783.

Christine would still like some stitching stories to go with some of the loaned items, and would also like more information about the WW1 Hearts and the stories behind those. Three of the hearts have no name attached (one has initials, but we cannot work out who the maker is!) : one is a broken heart, '1914-1918, Remember' on it ; one commemorates Ezra Bell, and one re: Col.W Beddow - please let Christine have the information a.s.a.p. - preferably by email if you can.

Christine has worked extremely hard on our behalf, and this promises to be an exciting display, so do give her your whole-hearted support if possible, and contact the museum if you are coming to the Preview, with numbers to help with the catering.

Next month's  meeting, 6th October,  will be a workshop making felted eggs, for those who wish to, but I shall be sending out more details later.
