August 2017

Hi Folks

Today we had Dyeing to Paint so the blog has been updated. Do take a peek and feel free to leave a comment.

A quick reminder that Cutting Edge resumes in earnest on Tuesday 12 September. Liz will be collecting annual membership renewal fees at the meeting which will be £32.00 so don’t forget your cheque books!

The packs for making a block for the Project Linus quilt will be available again at the September meeting for those of you who haven’t had one yet.. We hope that many of you will contribute and help brighten the life of a young teenager. The plan is to complete and return the blocks by 14 November and then we will plan a day in the New Year to complete the quilt.

As previously mentioned we will be having a display at Ystradowen Village Hall on Saturday 16 September to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the hall. If you have any small pieces of work that you would like to be included please bring them along to the September meeting.

Angie Hughes is running a workshop on Tuesday 19 September 2017. Information and a booking form is on the programmes page of the blog. Anyone is welcome to attend so please feel free to forward the information to anyone that you think might be interested in attending. Final details and the requirements list will be circulated at the end of August to those who have booked a place.

We also have a number of events planned for the rest of the year, details of which can be found on the Programme page of the blog
