The first evening meeting of the year is on Thursday 4 February, 7pm for a 7,30pm start, in the Cook Community Hub Hall. This is sit down formal meeting (as opposed to the sit and sew meetings held in the daytime).
There are two special attractions at this meeting:
- there is a library fund sale. Excess books, DVDs and patterns from the library will be for sale in the hall, as well as donated books magazines and patterns from members. All money raised goes to future library purchases. It is not too late to donate items – just put them in the library returns box in the days leading up to the meeting or give them to librarian Beth on the night. Don’t forget to bring some money to snap up a bargain!
- teachers and sponsors let us know there plans for the year – classes, workshops, fabric releases, sewing machines etc.
There is the usual fun at the meeting – announcements, lucky door prize, name badge draw, raffles as well as supper after the meeting.
You can join or renew your membership at the meeting. Membership is from 1 January to 31 December each year, so renewals are now overdue! You need to be a financial member to stand for committee or vote at the AGM on 3 March. You also need to be a member by 31 March in order to exhibit and sell at the Annual Exhibition in August.
