 Why not come along and have a chat over a cup of tea and see if anything would interest you. We are a friendly Group who meet every week and will make you feel very welcome. During the year we try to hold trips, workshops, demonstrations, ‘show and tell’ and swap materials events.

If you wish to use a sewing machine, tables can be set up to facilitate. 

If you have any ideas for workshops/events/demonstrations talks etc, please let one of us know.

Do contact any of the Leaders for more information.

Forget me not appeal

Textile Group – Tap to enlarge

In mid February,  a representative from the Alzheimer’s Society, Gina Berry, came to collect all the knitted, crocheted or stitched ‘Forget me not Flowers’ made by our own Textile Group, the Creative Stitchers from Aughton Village Hall and the Knit and Natter Group from Christ Church.

The flowers will decorate the staircases at the Harris Museum & Gallery in Preston where they will be part of ‘The Unfurlings’, an events programme to support those living with dementia, their carers and families.  Events have just begun and continue until the end of May.  Everyone is welcome to attend and they are all in the afternoons.

Gina is the dementia adviser for West Lancashire and was quite overwhelmed at the numbers of hand-made flowers presented to her.  We didn’t count them but there were probably around 250.
