OPEN DAY 21 June 2010

Our first Open Day and what a day .... excellent weather, lots of visitors and an abundance of lovely work and books for everyone to see.  Tea, coffee and cakes were also available for visitors to enjoy

To enhance the embroidery exhibition Rev Nigel Sinclair put several beautiful stoles, alter cloths and a chausible inspired by Matisse on display in the church.  He also revealed further little gems of information about the church.

Our next meeting is on Monday, 19 July 10.00 am - 4.00 pm.  Details will be sent to all those who are interested in participating.  Unfortunately one of our tutors - Diane Freeman - will not be available that day but a full programme of tuition will be provided.
