Next meeting Tuesday 2nd August

Our next meeting on Tuesday 2nd August is all about poppies!
We will be once more making poppies for the poppy appeal.
This is what we achived in April

We’re planning on selling these lovely handmade poppy corsages to help the poppy appeal in November.
Carole from The British Legion will be coming along to say hello.
This is being organised by Jenny & each poppy will have it’s own make, do and mend label.
If you’d like to join in please bring some red/green fabric or yarn & some black buttons, a basic sewing kit, knitting needles or crochet hook. You can either knit, crochet or sew your poppies, Jenny will be showing us how.
Or you can just bring your own project!
Booking is essential…… you can either book online here (recommended) or email me at
