The Travelling Books will be on display in the Exhibition so the next journey will start at the October meeting.
If you would like to take part in the next journey please contact Pat Hancock by 12th October with your theme so that she can prepare the rota ready for the October meeting.
Anyone can take part, so if you have done one before and want to start again or if you haven't yet taken part this will be your opportunity.
Please look at the Travelling Books gallery for inspiration.
Chairman's Challenge 2019
Sue gave out empty clear plastic hanging baubles at the AGM, with the challenge to decorate/fill/embellish in any way you wish, using any technique, with any theme (not necessary Christmas).
The baubles will be hung so you can replace the ribbon if you wish.
Please bring to the Christmas lunch on 7th December or to the November meeting.

Please note that it is acceptable to include “Work in Progress” in the cabinet and there will be labels available to add to unfinished pieces.
Please bear in mind that the cabinet is not very deep, so framed items are sometimes difficult to display, and as the cabinet is glass-fronted, pre-glazed items do not always look at their best.
