Dear Friends,

There’s another week gone by. I do hope you are all keeping well. It’s been a busy week at the Federation as we had our monthly Board meeting on Tuesday and we also sent out our first direct email to our members who have an email address.  If you didn’t receive one then do let your MCS representative know so that they can enter your correct email address on the communication system.

The Show the Love Competition was very well supported with over sixty entries, the Judge was very impressed.

Comment from Judge Christine Dyer – “My goodness, what a difficult task and what a wonderful array of skills! I split the entries into two categories – Decorative and Wearable and here are the winners. Well done everyone”-

It’s been great to see that over 60% of our WIs are meeting on Zoom and I have enjoyed popping into a number of meetings from my sofa!  Whenever I chat to members, I am always impressed by the number of creative and innovative ways you have all found of staying in touch.  Hopefully it won’t be too long before we are all able to meet safely in person.

Stay safe

Best wishes

Anne
