Richard Box Talk Feb 201517012015_0000

On Saturday 21st February 2015 there will be a Workshop with Richard Box  titled “Poppies”,  to be held from 10am -4pm in All Hallows Church Hall, Greenhill Road, Liverpool L18 6JJ. This workshop is now fully booked and there is a waiting list.

 

We listened to an interesting Talk last Saturday which was given by Marie Stacey from MEG and Terri Holmes from Wirral Society of the Blind and Partially Sighted. They were explaining the problems that sight difficulties can pose to embroiderers and how they may cope with them. Some photos of the day are available to view on PROGRAMME → WORKSHOPS & TALKS → WORKSHOPS & TALKS 2015 page……….

FEBRUARY’S SNOWFALL

February sends down heavy snow

trees seem old men with beards as their tears freeze.

Snow hides Nature’s landscapes,

no birds dare to fly,

but they stay under gutters dreaming like me of spring.
