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. Membership runs from January to December and is £25 for the year. Visitors are welcome (£4.50).
Please note: workshops other than those at the January meeting are at extra cost. Spaces may be limited and priority is given to members.
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.
Many thanks to programme secretary Alyson Farmer for putting together such an interesting line-up.
