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

A Message from our new President for 2021 – Pauline Mackenzie

Just staying in touch…..

Hi everyone, a lot of us have been chatting on our Facebook Group and it has been amazing and also wonderful to see everyones’ beautiful pieces of work.It has been a very arduous 2020, and we don’t want a repeat performance.

Some of our members have been meeting in small groups and that is great in order to maintain our contacts with various people. I have always felt that our Branch is a wonderful friendship group, where we share our achievements and maintain our various friendships. We don’t want to lose members, because it is our members who we all learn from and who have life time sewing skills that they are all eager to share.

For our first meeting for 2021 there will be strict Covid rules which are there to keep everyone safe. We even have our very own COVID coordinator, but she promises not to carry a whip or long darning needles…!

So to you all, stay safe and look forward to seeing you all Monday, February 8 at St. David’s Church Hall, Aphrasia Street Newtown at 10am. Bring lunch and your own mug for tea or coffee.

Hands were kept busy while we were at home…
