A Thought Provoking Start to the New Year

9 Jan

It was lovely to see so many members eager to get sewing again after the Christmas celebrations.

And, our first meeting was made all the more memorable with an extermely interesting and thought provoking talk from Maggie Cullinane from Cardiff Metropolitan University.

Her talk was about the Mothers of Africa charity and the work that Maggie and others had been involved in in Zambia.

A huge vote of thanks to Maggie for sharing her experiences and for making us so much more aware of such a worthwhile charity
