Phillipa Turnbull has donated a DVD of basic Crewel work stitches to our  collection. Come and browse the box at the party. Vicky has our collection at every meeting.

We held our first MEG Summer Tea Party recently, and invited some members from Isle of Man E.G. I hope they enjoyed their day in Liverpool and that MEG might return the visit some day. To see some photos of our party and all Competition results have a look at our GROUP EVENTS PAGE……

The Years At The Spring

The year’s at the spring,

And day’s at the morn;

Morning’s at seven;

The hill-side’s dew-pearled;

The lark’s on the wing;

The snail’s on the thorn;

God’s in his Heaven— All’s right with the world!
