Next Meeting: Friday 1 February 2019 – Branch Evening – Simply Books
Lesley Vowles will be bringing along some of the books she has made over the years for us to have a look at and enjoy. We will be making a small book using one of the easiest bookbinding techniques.
Please bring with you the following:
- A spoon (any size)
- A needle with an eye large enough to take a Perle thread and that has a sharp point. A Crewel needle is ideal
- A small pair of scissors
- A pencil
- A ruler
Workshops – You might be able to get a place on our 2 part workshop with Tricia Tominey on Saturdays 2nd Feb & March 2019. There are definitely spaces available for workshops later in the year, so check the Branch Workshop information. Non- members are always welcome to join us too.
