The next meeting of “Sew & So” with Kickstart 
Saturday June 9th 11am-1pm

at our usual St. Paul's Church hall, Boundary Road, West Bridgford NG2 7DB

Bring your lunch and stay for the afternoon talk.


'Stepping Up and Out' with 'Sew and So'


Sew and So was originally introduced to provide an extra meeting for members participating in the Kickstart programme, but is now open to all.


Some of our members have little or no experience of exhibiting their work and may feel daunted by the prospect. Sew and So offers the perfect opportunity to share ideas; get help, support and advice on current work; techniques;enjoy mini workshops; socialise and maybe even stitch! We shall discuss the group project 'Doors And Gates” and look at ways to use the small canvas, and the use of Bondaweb (or similar products).


There is a small charge of £3 per session – I look forward to seeing you there.


 Judith Burnett


Visitors very welcome.
