Next Meeting 7 June 2014 - Japanese Ring Thimbles (Yubinuki)

Thanks to all members who contributed to the interesting and impressive exhibition of members' first piece and latest or current piece.  What a lot of beautiful and skilled work!

Our next meeting takes place on 7 June 2014 and Kathryn Thomson will be leading a workshop on Japanese Ring Thimbles - more details can be found here.  The cost for the workshop will be £7.00, plus the cost of the kit from Kathryn, £1.50.  The workshop will start at 10:30 sharp, to enable the thimbles to be completed in the day.

There are a limited number of places to enable Kathryn to give those attending the appropriate amount of time and attention, but places are still available.

If you are interested in joining the group, why not come along and see what we do.  If there are still places available, you might be able to join the Japanese Ring Thimbles workshop.
