On Saturday 8th September our year starts again with the AGM in the morning. Members should have received the relevant paperwork by now. Members are encouraged to renew their branch membership. On a personal note, I renew my Guild membership online annually, it’s quick and easy, I have had no problem with scam emails and it saves a bit of work for our Membership Secretary.
Our afternoon speaker will be Carol Quarini on the subject of the Battle of Britain Lace Panel and her response to it. (see link for more information).
The Programme for the coming year will be included in the Newsletter, which should be ready in time for 8th September. It will also be available here a few days later and you will of course also receive a copy on your Members’ Card after details of the new Committee members are confirmed.
Workshops – Booking for 2019 branch workshop opens in October, but brief information about them will be available in the Programme, with more from Sheila P at meetings
