We are delighted to welcome Jan Tillett, a talented Textile Artist, as our new President
We are sad to report the death of Sheila Lampkin in early November. Sheila was an active member of the Torbay group and served for many years on the executive committee of WCE. She initiated and edited our first website and encouraged our presence on social media. She was a very skilled embroiderer, both hand and machine as well as be extremely talented in many related art and craft areas. Sheila often contributed ideas for challenges for the AGM and within the newsletter. She was a great encourager and good friend. We will miss her.
Donations may be made to RNLI in her memory.
We would also like to inform you that, sadly, Maggie Grey feels it is time to step down from her role as our President in October.
Changes in meetings due to Covid 19
Sadly we have to announce that Spectrum of Stitch exhibition at The Gallery Upstairs, Upton, Poole (3-14th September) and Threads at the Grand, Swanage (16-20 September) have both been cancelled due to the current Covid situation.
We look forward to welcoming you next year - dates to be announced soon.
