March 2014

Our March meeting is nearly upon us and my thoughts have turned to producing the Martlets Newsletter for our March meeting also our January meeting with our New Year Banquet…mmmm there was loads of yummy food. The New Year Banquet was introduced to celebrate the new millennium and we have had a banquet every year since.

Our Suppliers for our January meeting were Jenny and Graham Hudson, who brought loads of bobbins to tempt us.

Our suppliers in March will be ‘Summertimehols’ alias Holly Dale with her range of hand crafted gift ware which now includes some lacemaking items…and Bunglebee Lace alias Brenda Bristow with her range of lace threads and wools. See you there....
