West Park United Reformed Church were ready for us this month. A really good turn out of members who came along to chat, sew and enjoy the coffee and scones. Quite a few birds in evidence. Heather Kay (pictured) needed a little assistance, Irene Angel added stitching to hers and Norma Preston had completed 2 more. However, Alyson Evans caused a stir when she started to add needlefelted details to the lovely felt parrot she was working on!

Several green squares under construction and everyone appeared to be working on projects which have been lurking around for a while awaiting completion. Future dates are:-

Tuesday, 29 September
Tuesday, 27 October
Tuesday, 24 November

The sight of the birds led to our being asked if we would like to produce Christmasy items to sell at the Church coffee mornings at the end of November and throughout December with a small percentage of the sales income going to the church. Sounds like a splendid idea so will keep you posted.
