Welcome to Region 9. I have just taken over from Brenda Weavers as Co-ordinator for the region and am still learning the ropes so please bear with me.
As a record breaking summer draws to a close our thoughts will return to the comfort of our sewing projects, both new and all those still not finished, to fill the dark nights!
Very soon we have a day with Helen Howes at Milton Community Center, Cambridge entitled ‘Adventures in Improvisation’, on 21 September 2019. Check with Susan Ross, our treasurer, to see if there are still places available.
We will have an early Christmas Get Together in Thorpe St Andrews, Norwich on 16 November which will be both interesting and entertaining before the real business of Christmas takes over. Check the events page for further details.
Coffee Mornings at Plush Addicts in Peterborough, Escape and Create In St Ives and Sewing Daze in Sutton continue every month. These are for anyone who enjoys sewing, knitting or whatever handicraft takes their fancy. They are very friendly and welcoming. There is no charge just a donation for drinks and cake. Bring a friend or relative to get a taste of sewing.
We are trying to organise a varied and interesting programme going into 2020 and beyond and hope to see many of you at our events. If there is a speaker or workshop you would like to see us put on please let me know.
