*** STOP PRESS | Nov 1st “In” Meeting***

Just to let you all know – in addition to our Make-up Demonstration with Sue Helyer on Thursday, Carol Lacey, a jewellery-maker who specialises in beaded jewellery, will also be coming with examples of her work as well as items for sale.

Norwich Shopping Trip – Nov 15th:
