    Sadly we lost our dear friend and stitching companion Marion Vera Patmore on 29 March 2015 to breast cancer. Marion was a great character and we really miss her. During her illness Marion was greatly supported by local Norfolk charity 'Big C'. To honour Marions memory our group has pledged to raise money for Big C in her name. Currently we are busy making items for a fund raising event in 2016. Watch this space.
