The Overdue Crop

 Before I get carried away, let me give you the facts:-

CROP! Saturday October 1st 2022

Radbrook Community Centre
Calverton Way,
Radbrook Green
Shrewsbury
SY3 6DZ

If you've been to a WOYWW Crop, you already know that there are no qualifying criteria - if you read this blog and want to meet some of the Wednesday Work Deskers, come and join us. There's a small danger of some short face time meetings with Deskers abroad too...just so we don't miss smiley faces that want to come but are overcome by geography!

  • Bring something to work on - colouring in, cutting out, stitching, knitting, scrapping...whatever. Don't plan to do a lot of it, but its nice to sit and chat whilst doing a little of something isn't it!
  • We'll set up a table for swaps and RAK offerings. (If they are still there at clear up time, please take them home with you!)
  • There will be a raffle, proceeds of which will be donated to a Charity. If you'd like to donate a prize, that would be lovely. 
  • We will charge you, for hall hire and lunch...some of our lovely menfolk opt to spend the day with us too, and they are very welcome; but this year we must formally count them and charge per head. 
There's stuff to do before you arrive, (a little, optional challenge) but we'll talk about that a little later. For now, please check your diary, make your arrangements and indicate that you're going to come...of course we need to achieve a minimum number for viability, so it really will help if you can commit early. BUT..it's a pay on the day thing. It's fifteen weeks away, (from the date I posted this article!) so you could start a little pot and dump a £ or two in it every week till you get there and *pouf*, subs paid!

The entire day and all the work before hand is being brought to you by the big hearts and busy hands of the Sisters of Stitch again. Twiglet and Wipso. Jo and Annie. We are in their debt again, these things aren't just thrown together.

I cant tell you how exciting it is to be thinking about a get together again. So overdue, huh. 
There will be hugs all around, or not, depending on your preferences. We'll talk COVID safety etc as we get closer to being able to assess conditions.

Meanwhile, please...consider your options and say you'll come!

YAY! if the timing works out I'd love to zoom in for a quick smile and chat

If you are doing Zoom, I would like to join in. I still don't have a camera, but I found out I have a voice, so you will be able to hear me and I can see each of you.

Hoping to manage it, but it will very much depend on transport and health. I'll say I am planning it but fate might conspire against me

I’ll need to say no at the moment, Julia, as husband is awaiting eye surgery x2 so can’t commit just now.
