Old Mail March 1986
As plans are made to renovate and decorate our Church in Cosgrove, the newly formed Guild is already busily at work on its first project to provide the Church with a set of beautiful tapestry kneelers by the time the redecoration is completed. The Guild plans to meet once a month in homes around the village. These meetings will be social get togethers with tea and light refreshments provided by the hostess (20p per head). They may include whist drives and other social functions but a few moments will be set aside at each meeting to hand out and collect work, subscriptions and donations and talk about further social events and work needs.
The Guild needs
Volunteers to embroider the cross stitch kneelers
Donors who would like to donate a sum towards a personalised kneeler in memory of a dear one or to commemorate a special family event.
Each kneeler costs £10 and donors will be invited to choose their own design from a coloured brochure and give their chosen inscription. They may then take the kneeler away to stitch at home or hand it over to a volunteer to make it for them. There is a label provided to be attached to the back of the kneeler giving the name of the donor, the maker and the name of the person to whom it is dedicated.
Hostesses to invite the Guild to hold a social afternoon or evening in their home and donate any proceeds to the Kneeler Fund.
The next meeting of the Guild will be held at Greystones (next to the bus shelter) on 2.30pm on 3rd March. All are welcome to come along for a chat and tea, to see the work being done and to join in the Bring and Buy in aid of the Fund.
