After so many months, firstly not meeting at all, and then meeting via zoom, followed by the collapse of the Embroiderers' Guild branch network, we are about to start meeting as York Embroiderers and Stitchers. This is a message from Chris, our Chair:
Nearly there! So just a few practical points about the meeting on 14th August.We start at 11am and finish at 4pm. After a brief welcome we’ll have a Show and Tell of work members have done since we last met. (If you prefer just to display your work of course that’s fine.) After breaking for lunch at 12.30 it’s stitch and chat so please bring some work with you.
At this meeting you can complete enrolment, and you’ll receive copies of the group’s constitution, our programme, and a YES information sheet. Members will also see the entries for our YES logo competition and vote for their choice.
There will be a sales table but for this month it will be books only. These are from the library we had at the folk hall. From September there will also be the remaining library books for members to borrow.
Takeaway drinks can be bought from the cafes in Haxby but tea/coffee and biscuits will be provided at the end of the afternoon. If you would like to have your lunch in the garden we recommend that you bring a suitable chair as there is limited outdoor seating.
Though not mandatory, at this stage the hall management has requested that masks are worn when moving around the hall. The hall will have been thoroughly cleaned and sanitised appropriately.
We are all looking forward very much to meeting again.
Best wishes, and see you soon,
