Shazam: Exhibition 2018

SHAZAM! 50 Magical Years 2018

Our last biennial exhibition celebrated our 50 years of stitching:  our Golden Anniversary.

1001 Arabian Nights was the theme and there was lots of Gold as well.

From Friday 14th to Sunday 16th September 2018.

Our guidance groups stitched furiously to produce some amazing group entries to the challenge of the theme. Canvaswork, Patchworkers and the Textile Arts group GeeTAG are amongst those involved. Individual members were also invited to submit something to fit the theme. The Canvaswork Group’s tiles won the Visitor’s Choice award.

Brenda Ryan won the individual Visitor’s award with her fantastic Rackham Cloth

Stitching Alone!

The Covid-19 virus is affecting all sorts of activities. We will be closing our meetings and classes until at least the end of April when we will be seeing what is appropriate then.

Here is a letter from our President

Dear Members

I am very sad to have to let you know that as a result of the current COVID-19 (corona) virus situation the Committee has decided that all scheduled classes, the April Sit and Sew meeting, the Sit and Sew session scheduled at the Library for Heritage Week in April and all meetings of our Guidance Groups will be cancelled (or postponed in the case of classes) from 17 March until the end of April. 

If you know a member who doesn’t have access to email, would you kindly pass this information on to them. I will also try to contact these members.

Embroidery House is closing for the next few months, and other branches are taking similar actions to ours in order to protect the health of our members. The Committee will meet again at the end of April to assess the situation and we will let you know what the next steps will be for our Branch. 

I suppose that the only positive thing to come out of this is that some of our unfinished projects may get completed! 

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions about this decision. It wasn’t taken lightly, but we all felt that the safety of our members was the priority.

Kind regards – and keep stitching. – Leonie Lister
