Queen Mary at our June Meeting

May June July and August find many of us indoors by the fire stitching, or travelling north for the sunshine.We did venture out for our Birthday celebrations in June and welcomed our new State President Linda Hagar. Four members Hilde Brenner, Barbara Coote, Marj Kavanagh and Dorothy Cavill have earned their 25 year membership brooches.

Meetings have, however, shown off some of our work on themes.In May we honoured Mothers and several pieces embroidered by our mothers were on display.

June’s Queens Birthday included a Mary Queen of Scots doll.  July’s theme was the appropriate Woolly Warmth.

August proved that bags are popular items to stitch as many and varied ones appeared on show. September will show that Spring has sprung with a Floral and Botanical theme.October gives us a chance to show off our Brooches.
