A very Happy New Embroidery Year to you all! I hope the holiday was happy, with lots of friends and family and also time to do a bit of stitching. Welcome back, and welcome too to those who are new, and also to those who are just “trying it out.” We hope you are very happy with us. We love having you!
We are beginning with a workshop ALREADY! Carol Robinson is teaching us about silk embroidery, both threads and material. The details are as follows:
On Tuesday in February we will be doing a class in Silk Thread embroidery on Silk fabric.
The design is a sampler of various common stitches designed to give the embroiderer an opportunity to learn how to condition thread and to learn how to work with silk. It will be a small class.
I presume this class is already full, but you may want to speak to Carol and get your name down for a further class later on in the year. Please send her an SMS message or WhatsApp if you would like to know more.
The major concern at the moment is the AGM which will be held in March. We need people to stand on the committee. There is NO exhibition this year, so it is not a stressful “baptism of fire.” We really need someone with a bit of bookkeeping knowledge to be our treasurer, and we need someone to manage the teas, one for Saturday and one for Tuesday, we would like a secretary as well if anyone is willing. Please think about it and let Hettie know.
Just a brief reminder about the annual membership fees. If you haven’t already paid, please do so, and also tea money is due. Either R10 per month for Tuesday or R5 per month for Saturdays. You may like to pay your tea money up front for the whole year.
Enjoy your embroidery, and also enjoy the bit of history you will find in the insert. (https://pioneerthinking.com/crafts)
