Chris opened the meeting and welcomed members and new members.
Lorna then introduced Clare Walsh our speaker for the night.
Clare was a teacher in Oxfordshire for over 30 years and now lives in Tetbury, since childhood she has always loved fabric and colour and this transferred to her fascination for Indian Block Printing which she has studied in India and now does workshop/talks here. Clare used a powerpoint demonstration to give us the history of this ancient art, passed around wonderful samples and intricate printing blocks for us to see and some ladies had a go at creating a simple block print sample. Rowena gave the vote of thanks for a very interesting and entertaining talk.
After a short break we went to business and had our Annual Meeting with reports from Anne (sec), Pam (finance) and Chris (President) all proposals were approved and seconded. Judy thanked all of the committee for their care and work.
Ali reported that the first coffee morning since lock down held at Steepleton,was a great success and she will arrange another soon. The lunch at Steepleton on 24th November has tempted a lot of ladies and should you wish to go then do get in touch with Ali as soon as possible.
Our meeting next month will, not surprisingly, be a festive affair so dig our your tinsel boa’s and Christmas earrings etc and we will have a social with some fun thrown in.
The ladies in the Craft Group have enjoyed doing needle felt and created some heavenly angels:
