Report about April Meeting

At our April meeting Liz explained how a knight led her into stitching when she retired from teaching ! Then onto the lady who from the look she was giving Liz explained, was not too impressed with the knight and  from there she was hooked! She had a beautiful display of the different techniques she uses including black work, white work and pulled thread.
She explained how sending one of her designs to a magazine which was accepted with requests for more, she has travelled the world teaching stitch and developed online communities in countries where it is not possible to have meetings .  So from a simple beginning Liz has become an important person in many peoples lives by creating unique designs for her kits she has found a way of satisfying people’s basic and human need to create. 
We are so proud to have her as one of our members.
Show and Tell was busy- Sylvia Silver had created a stunning cross stitch portrait of a friend who had recently died and gifted it to her friends daughter who was quite emotional  on receiving it.
