Please note that with the exception of the January meeting, workshops are extra. Members have priority and places may be limited. To secure a place you must pay a deposit of £10 and the balance is due one month before the workshop takes place.
ALL MEETINGS TAKE PLACE AT FOULDEN VILLAGE HALL, WHICH IS OPEN FROM 1PM UNLESS OTHERWISE INDICATED. TALKS START AT 2PM PROMPT.
Meetings take place on the second Saturday of the month unless otherwise specified.
Due to ongoing uncertainties we are not publishing a programme for 2021 until we can meet in person. News of Zoom meetings, hopefully including speakers, will be featured on the Welcome page of this website so please keep checking in to stay up to date.
NB: Paid-up membership for 2020 has been carried forward for 2021.
Our year runs from January to December. Subs are £25 and can be paid by cash, cheque or BACS. The General Data Protection Act requires all members to complete the enrolment form every year. It is important to opt in to receiving BTG emails if you want to keep up to date with events and to receive email reminders and newsletters. There are BACS details on the form but please email the group at email@example.com to let us know that you have done so. You can print and complete a form HERE.
As well as receiving a copy of the programme, new members receive a folder containing a booklet of handy practical info and a copy of the constitution.
The annual fee is due at the January meeting and should be paid within three months. You can join in September for half the annual fee.
We are able to keep subscription costs low partly thanks to the great support the sales table receives. Textile-related contributions are always welcome.
Spreading the workload is vital to the smooth running of the group so please sign up to help when you can. Volunteers are always needed for teas, tables and chairs, and to assist our speaker. If everyone takes a turn you should only have to do it once a year.
