Report – October 2016

Here it is…Officially Fall
We can feel the anticipation of cooler days after our long hot summer!
Our first meeting for the new season is on Monday night September 26th – the 4th Monday of the month as usual.

If anyone is in town do please drop in – we’re always good for tea & treats!
We’re all looking forward to catching up with our fellow stitchers in our Guild and seeing what everyone has been up to over the summer.
Our coming year at a glance…

Our September meeting will be a meditative one… Stitching our stresses away … Stitching meditation with https://vimeo.com/177777774 – A video with Liz Kettle as inspiration.
