I was so sorry to miss last nights meeting but I had just landed after a 21 hour journey from my holiday to Sri Lanka. I had a lovely time and Ann tells me that the same was had by you all. I love the flower pictures created by Barbara Jepson and was delighted to be introduced to her at the Ten Plus exhibition in Salford a few weeks ago.Ann remembered to take a few photos
Barbara is holding a mini yurt that she had made.

NEWSLETTER - MAY 2011
- Thought I would begin by sharing this message from Pam Cumberbatch, I have replied with my congratulations.
“Just a quick email to tell you about being involved in "the" project. I was really proud to be a part of the Royal School of Needlework team that created Catherine's dress. It was a surreal moment to see it being worn on the TV. Now isn't that something for the CV. There is more info on the RSN website if you are interested. See you soon Pam C”
