Community Notice Board outside Studio 36 in Denmark Road

From the end of December for a month we have the opportunity to display of our creative stitching. It will need up to 30 A4 photos and l’d like it to be work from as many of us as possible and showing the variety of things we do. She also likes the board to be colourful and fun!

It would be very helpful if you could bring pictures and ideas to our next 2 meetings as I will have to get it organised before Christmas. I’m also very happy for you to email them to me. Please don’t give your original photos, just a copy. They will be laminated to withstand January weather.
