Some Members’ Comments:

Joining the group has given me friendship and learning new skills.  Joy

I joined the Paignton group in 2007. I had very little sewing experience except cross stitch. I have learnt such a lot from some very knowledgeable members and look forward to each meeting.   Ann

As a new member I was made to feel welcome. The planned projects and workshops sound really interesting and it doesn’t matter if you are an experienced sewer or not.   Linda
