EG members night.

Our members night was very well supported, nearly 70 members of our group turned up. After a fun quiz, Di got them making a mini sock monkey and she supplied a keyring so that they could attach it too if they wanted.
The committee members made cakes and served the refreshments so everyone could get on with their stitching. Nickie's job was to sample all the cakes! (lots of diets went out the window tonight!)
One of our members supplies the raffle prizes every month, and they are always so beautifully arranged with very scrummy fabrics and threads. Members can also bring along books to sell on members night, that they no longer want, and the Branch takes a small commission. I managed to get some lovely books.

Next month our speaker is Lynda Mink AKA Purplemissis-another night not to be missed!!!!

I was really sorry not to be able to get there last night. Looks like everyone had a good time, Nickie looks as though she was enjoying her sampling job!

Lucky you to get the book on dragonflies, i just love her stumpwork, I often borrow her books from the library. Have you seen her new book at Craft Arena.
