September - Things To Do

I'm a newbie to the Group but have received a warm welcome and am here with my first task - updates from the world of The Material Girls.
Today was a regular monthly meeting - with lots to discuss.  Work was delivered ready for setting up the "Primarily Colour" exhibition at Craft Arena.  Do go along to see it 20th Sept/2nd Oct.
Our collaborative exhibition in February "Articulated Materials" is also moving on - pieces under construction, dates and tasks in hand.  We've a deadline to finish our hanging by the next meeting - so no pressure.  Miriam worked out how many days it is to go... allowing for being ready in time, and time off for Xmas/New Year - we reckon we've 100!!  tick, tick tick...
Other venues are being investigated to make the most of this work, potential new opportunities arising - so come back regularly to check for news on those.
Today we had a new honorary member.... Betsy, an 11 week old puppy, who joined Miriam's family only at the weekend.  Cute.
