Next Annual General Meeting
Wednesday 24th April 2019 – 10am – 12noon
Guild Hall (Main Hall), Cheadle Staffs, Tape Street, ST10 1BG
All Cheadle U3A Members Welcome!
The SEWSOCIAL needlecraft group will be starting again on Wednesday 18th September. We meet weekly at Freehay Village Hall 1pm to 3pm.
I run occasional workshops but on the whole members work on their own projects (dressmaking/upholstery/cross stitch/embroidery/crochet & knitting etc.) within this knowledgeable, supportive & friendly environment.
With my recycling hat on, I would like to arrange a group within the group, of people to make MORSBAGS. These are shopping bags, sewn from recycled/donated fabric, bedding/curtains etc. They are given away free, with the aim of reducing single use plastic waste. I have given some out during a previous coffee morning. I will do this again but would like to incorporate the making of them and then donate to local shops and the Cheadle Foodbank. So if you have a sewing machine that is gathering dust at the back of your cupboard, you could come and join us making these very simple tote bags. I will provide the labels.
I would also like to put a call out to anyone who has any fabric they can donate to the cause. I can collect from the local area.
If you enjoy needlecrafts of any kind, do come along and check us out. Tea/coffee & biscuits are available.
