Clare R kindly led Stitch Day this month by showing members how to make fun patchwork bags.
Thank you Vernice for the photos.
On Saturday 22 June our branch celebrated National Stitch Day in St Peter's Church, Marlborough and in the Library at Calne. The four photos below are taken in Marlborough - Clare R, Ann S, Maria F & Vernice C.

Thank you to Christine H and Vernice C for the photos.
There was a great hive of activity at the April Stitch Day. A group of members were busy on our long-term branch project, some were creating Flags of Thanks and others were doing their own work. Our extensive library is available to all members. Stitch Day is a great opportunity to chat to like minded friends and spend time doing what we all enjoy most, stitching!
Photos thanks to Vernice C.
Vernice made celebratory flags, Chris patched machine stitching together Margaret, Ann and Susanne stitched the Prospect project, Susan hand stitched and Clare printed poetry.
What a hive of activity!
Text thanks to Clare and photos thanks to Vernice
