Hopefully by the time of the next newsletter I will be able to give a review of how the conference went plus much more information about what is happening in the group.
Members can send articles and reviews at any time (dates and details in the newsletter) and I am even happy to type them up if you send them (legibly) by hand; as long as they are in good time for the deadline (mid-January). Even if you have just snippets of information on exhibitions you have seen or are coming up let me know - or bring them along to the conference and I'll see you there. Janette

As always the usual contact details are on the website for the articles - either by email or send by post and I'll type it up.

Get those forward diary planners out - have you looked on the righthand side of the blog - because its updated with dates as soon as are known, so you have as much time as possible to think about attending events.
~You've already been advised of the Exhibition in 2014
~ and the next November Conference on 17th November, at the Anglia Ruskin University Chelmsford, Essex.
~The next AGM and Conference will be held at Girton College, Cambridge, once again, on 20th April 2013.
~ the November Conference will be on 16th November 2013 at the Golf and Conference Centre, Cambridge.
Why two events in Cambridge? The AGM and Conference is organised by the Committee, with the decision made not to move this around the Region. However, the November Conferences are organised by each Area, with the next falling to Cambridge, but as you will see, a different venue has been arranged.
Of course there is sitll planning to be done, arrangements, bookings to be made - more information will be passed on as soon as is possible. But we do all hope that having the dates as soon as possible is a positive for Members.

30 boys and girls learnt the basics of knit stitch, with some progressing to purl, casting on and casting off. They all went home with their needles and yarn so they could continue with their projects at home.
Chelmsford Museum were extremely helpful, providing a supply of drinks and squash, and a lovely room to work in.

ERTF Conferences give the kind of information not to be found via other organisations, as such its an opportunity not to be missed. Plus the chance to meet up with other Members from around the entire Region. Our own ERTF Member, Denise Gannon from Craft Arena will be there with supplies, along with Chrome Yellow Books.
Members check out the Members section of the ERTF website - Non Members click here to download Conference information and booking form.

Don’t miss your last chance to enter this year’s Summer Exhibition.
The Summer Exhibition is selected and hung by an annually rotating committee of Royal Academicians, all of whom are practising artists and architects.

This is a an annual event run by Pauline and her husband who never gets an honourable mention but puts up with all the grief. So an honourable mention here!
This is one of the main events in our region for textile holics and it is a fab, friendly time - there is plenty to do, workshops, exhibitions, lecture, buying and it is small enough to have time to talk to everyone you know plus it is the cheapest event I knowto buy entry ticket - £5!
It is on all weekend and I cannot recommend highly enough. Have fun and enjoy.
