Sew and So with Kickstart October 13th 11.00am-1pm. We will be trying a new format. Judith will be helping us with some printing. You may of course bring your own work if you prefer. As usual there will be a charge of £3. We hope that you will come along and bring your lunch, as the AGM and October meeting will follow at 2.00pm.

Let's Print!

For our first session we will be looking at the many ways of printing onto fabric

using a variety of different print blocks. There will be an opportunity to have a go

at some of the ways to create a block. This is all about sharing our knowledge and

inspiring people new to these techniques, so if you use these methods already,

please bring along any of your favourites and samples of how you have used them in your work (this includes both commercial and handmade stamps/blocks).

Everyone is welcome, and if you are a newer member this is an opportunity to meet others in the branch in an informal atmosphere.

You may like to bring a packed lunch if you are staying on for the afternoon meeting.

Hope to see you there.

Everyone managed to find something of interest to buy when we last brought some of Liz Welch's stash in April and books in May.
Further treasures have been uncovered which we brought to the Sept meeting.
So far WBEG has sent very nearly £500 to Breast Cancer Now. Thank you all.
UPDATE - very nearly £800 raised by our branch.
