Notices 9th October

The Sheffield Quaker Tapestry is launching today!. The design group have been at work and now we have started to bring the design through on to the front so it is time to think about doing the rest of the sewing. An introductory film has been shown – if you’ve missed it but would like to see the film it will be available to borrow afterwards. Let Faith or Margaret know. They will bring the tapestry to meeting on subsequent Sunday’s during the next year when they hope as many people as possible will do at least one or two stitches. If you do have any questions speak to Faith or Margaret.
