Once again I wish all members and their families a good new year! We start the new decade with high hopes for fewer disruptions to our daily lives. Many people have become isolated from friends and activities. Your Guild branch has been holding us all together with Zoom meetings; being able to see others is very uplifting. Kim and Alice are busy organising events for third Saturdays, at the usual meeting times. Keep an eye on the web page; Hilary will fill in details as soon as she has them.
Perhaps you are like me and giving sewing a rest for now. The interest and encouragement of friends is a great stimulus to my stitching. I followed one friend’s advice and treated myself to a kit but now find the size of stitches too small for comfort. New glasses, I hope, will make life easier.
Talking of meetings: we are still planning our Regional Day in April, over the web. Michele is our Zoom master and I greatly admire her ability to control numbers of participants. The speakers we booked originally are happy to give their illustrated talks over the web. Please put the date in your new diaries.
Keep healthy and warm. Phone family and friends; do keep in touch with those you normally would see. Smile at strangers as we all need some contact with people. Best wishes for 2021.
