    World Embroidery Day July 30th

    Let’s celebrate that! The tenth annual World Embroidery Day falls on a Friday this year. Yes, it’s right before the long weekend but you aren’t starting your long weekend until the evening, are you? Come join us in the morning at Exhibition Park in Guelph. Bring something to stitch. Bring a lawn chair and a drink. We can keep our distance as there is plenty of space. Exhibition is a big park. I propose meeting at the entrance near Kathleen Street and Tipperary Place. There is good parking and we’ll have both shade and sun. Drop in anytime on Friday July 30th from 10 am to noon.

    (Our next chance will be on “Stitch in Public” day on the last Saturday in September.)
