    I am interested in joining the Patchwork and quilting group on 26th April, I have been doing Stop correcting “patchwork” and quilting for a few years now and having moved to Telford some 4 years ago I am now looking to join a group, please can you tell me how often the group meets and where. I live in Starchily so Madley is not that far away and I have a car.

    The group you have contacted takes place in Madeley Staffordshire, not Madeley near Telford.
    It’s about an hour away by car. Hope that helps.

    Should the monthly talk on Bletchley be on Thursday 13th July NOT Thursday 12th July?
