AGM - 2nd September
Table all set, ready for the meeting with our table fall taking centre stage
All sitting comfortably? Then we will begin.
Chair Kathryn, opens the meeting, assisted by Secretary Lesley and Treasurer Val.
The meeting was the usual format with minutes of the last AGM. a report about what we did during the last year – what a varied programme we had during 2018 – 19.
The departure of two committee members and welcoming two new members Jacqui and Janet.
Our treasurer, Val said it was time to tighten our belts and make some economies.
Sue, our programme secretary, went through the diary for the coming year 2019 - 20. We have three Saturday workshops – 5th October ‘Zentangles’ drawing with Gail Marsh – will members be able to design some stunning pieces of work afterwards? 4th April – Stitched Landscapes with Janet Browne and 13th July ‘Beautiful Batik’ with Tori Riley.
This year members will be able to start their Stitch Journals. We were all given homework to do during the summer, the first stitch for our journal – every member was given a different stitch to do.
One stitch sample worked during the summer. Was this a knotty problem?
Before leaving we were reminded that the October workshop ‘Rouleau Reinvented’ starts at 1pm
It was an enjoyable, friendly meeting where we all met together again after the summer break to swap stories and to seek advice on stitch problems.
