Vera Bradshaw Day 25th February

About 22 of members gathered for our third annual “Vera Bradshaw Day”.

Vera was a branch member for many years and we have named one of our yearly meetings in memory of her. The day-long day workshop is intended to be dedicated to finishing off work or continuing projects which have been lurking at the bottom of work-baskets and cupboards.


This year, as well as having the opportunity to continue with our own projects, we asked members to bring along the squares of fabric which we are working on adding to the runners you can see on the background of our website.

Some keen ladies have finished their squares whilst others are still trying to decide which style or method to use. The deadline is May 2015, so those of us still at the early stages needed to get stitching!

The second project that we are aiming to complete for the

70th Anniversary Celebrations on 17th October 2015 at the Regional AGM (spot the ‘plug’).  Ladies began making rectangles into triangular pyramids also known as ‘Humbugs’….we need 70 of them!!


It was great to have so many of us there and we managed to get a fair amount of stitching done in between all the chatter and catching up and cups of tea.

We’re looking forward to next month’s morning class on Wednesday 25th March. ‘Beginning Needlelace’ with Carol Hughes and Jean Rooke  and the meeting in the afternoon when we’ll hear about the Embroiderers’ Guild Collection from Anne Walden-Mills. If you’d like to join us please contact us to book for the morning class.
