Diary for 2019–20

We meet on the second Wednesday of each month at St. Thomas Church Hall, assembling from 7.30 p.m. with proceedings starting at 8.00.

Our Thursday meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of each month at one of our member’s homes and start by 7.30 pm. These meetings are an especially nice way for new members to get to know the group as they are very informal, often including more chat than sewing. 

Tuesday afternoon sessions are generally on the third Tuesday of the month. Because we have our Exhibition in August there will be no Wednesday or house meetings during the month.

Events and details will be added as they are confirmed.
