Hi everyone

On 8 February the Young Stitchers had their first meeting of the year and we’re going to share what they’ve been up to.

There was all the same stitchy energy, chat and enthusiasm. It was great to see the progress being made. The older participants are now tackling more challenging embroidery patterns and some are collecting serious gear……..what’s not to love about the sewing baskets??!

Here’s the eye candy….
