Megastitchers Meetings Begin

On Saturday 4 September, Megastitchers met for the first time face-to-face as a reformed Stitching group.  All had been beautifully prepared and appropriate precautions were in place but it was great to see old friends and to talk about stitching. Here is an overview of the meeting:-

There was an outstanding selection of "lockdown" work on display:-

August Update plus Embroiderers Guild activity

 You will find the Chair's August Update below.  The update gives details of the proposals for the upcoming meeting.  Further down the page is a link to Thread Talks from the Embroiderers Guild

August Update.

 Just a quick update/reminder. 

Sue, Jean, and I have visited Union Chapel this week and had a conversation with their covid coordinators. We thought a quick update was needed before the meeting in September.


The Chapel buildings – some cleaning materials will be provided but their caretaker is not full time, so we are planning on bringing our own stock, just in case. There are hand gel dispensers at various points around the building, and we will be operating a one-way system round the rooms. Outside the toilets are containers of wipes so you can wipe handles etc, as you use the facilities. Written guidelines are also displayed around the building. Obviously, we will open as many windows as we can.


Arrival – Please go straight into the large room as we are moving Ida and the signing in table. It is advisable to have your own pen when signing in. The door between the entrance hall and the small hall will not be used. The meeting fee is now £4, and you can pay your subs on the day if you haven’t already paid.  As we have the sales table and a small raffle you may need some real money with you. 


Kitchen – a maximum of 2 people can be in the kitchen at any time. We can use the urn and we will provide tea, coffee, sugar, and milk. But you will need to bring a cup/mug and any other crockery/cutlery you might need for your lunch. We will not be providing biscuits initially as there are some concerns about handling the packaging. If you want speciality teas or coffee, please bring your own until we get up and running.


Meeting – if you want to share work you have completed during lock down, please bring it. If you would like to write a short explanation of the work that would be great.


Afternoon Tea – really its coffee and cake so don’t forget your lunch.


Angie Hughes will give an online lecture on September 18th,  See the EG website HERE
