December Meeting: Holiday Social!


Our December meeting is coming quickly! We will be have a holiday get together, with Potluck and Penny Auction 🙂 So far we are good to go with our regular space, the River Gardens Community Room. 

This means, please bring some finger food with you (we do not have places to heat things up etc so make it buffet style) and also bring along a small gift (unwrapped) of something nice that you might like to receive (not expensive). It doesn't have to be sewing related - wine is always a hit 😉 We will be putting all the gifts out on a table and you can buy 5 tickets for $2 and put a ticket in each bag for the gift you would like to win. You can buy as many tickets as you like! 

We will have a short business meeting, our regular Sew & Tell, and our 50-50, and then enjoy some socializing, snacking, and auctioning. Everyone welcome, guests too, $5 at the door.

Dorset Button Making Workshop


This workshop will now be held at the Stratford Public Library in the Auditorium

The Guild is pleased to announce our first ever workshop! We will be learning about Dorset Buttons (and other kinds of thread wrapped buttons) from Margaret Cheesman from the London Embroidery Guild. This is a hands-on workshop and the materials fee is included in the class cost. 

You'll leave with an understanding of the history of Dorset buttons as well as some samples you've made in class. Hope to see anyone interested in this fascinating art at the workshop!

To register please email with your full name - you can also e-transfer the class cost to that email (but please include your name in a note so we know it's you!)
