The next meeting of “Sew & So” with Kickstart is Thurs 4 January 2-4pm

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

The next meeting of “Sew & So” with Kickstart is Sat 10 February 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.

Please make sure to bring your Doors and Gates pieces so Judith is able to plan for their mounting for the West Bridgford Library Exhibition.



'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.


With our next exhibition approaching fast, why not come along to the next Sew and So meeting being held between Thurs 4 January 2-4pm?


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.
