to provide a meeting place for members who are interested in any form of textiles, to meet up and share knowledge and ideas
to meet in a social setting so that we can sew and chat...the latter being most important
to inspire members to try different skills by providing the occasional 'workshop'
We meet on the third Thursday of each month in the Mary Smithells Room, Chalfont St. Peter Community Centre. The meetings are held from 2.00 - 4.00 pm.
Room hire costs are subsidised from the central Chalfonts U3A funds and we ask each member attending to make a maximum contribution of £1, irrespective of how many actually attend a meeting.
This is not an instructional group, so members usually have a range of sewing/knitting/crocheting/
We plan to invite Speakers to visit our group occasionally to provide an input of new ideas and skills. In this instance, we would be asking members to contribute a small amount in addition to the £1 session attendance fee, towards Speaker's fees.
Our group meetings are always social events.....but we will aim to have social 'get togethers' at various times during the year for a natter without needles!!!
If this appeals.....do come along to see what we're up to.
