beginners right the way through to experts.

for you to get to a meeting you could become an individual member, more details
from the National Office.
Our region also organises an exhibition every other
year our last one was on Saturday 16th
May 2015 at Brighton Racecourse, where we received favourable reviews. We
are known as a friendly exhibition and had some great demonstrators and hands
on sessions, friendly and helpful traders. Plus we had some amazing sugar works
there so do go to the exhibition pages to view the exhibits.
Some branches have changed their venues so do
check. The diary is currently waiting for a number of branches who are currently
updating their programmes and we will update as soon as they arrive.
Sugarcrafting and just have fun!
