The Paris group meets in various cafés in Paris, usually in the afternoon of the third or fourth Monday of each month.
The Monday Bridge Group is a relaxed and friendly group that meets at various members' homes in and around Paris. There’s always a tea break with cakes and biscuits but, on special occasions, something stronger is served. We’d love to welcome new members so please get in touch!"

The Needlecraft group is a joint activity with the Women’s International Club ( Le WIC de Paris), so there are members from both groups. The only “qualifying requirement “ to join is that you bring along some work involving “needles”. This can be any form of sewing, such as patchwork, cross-stitch, embroidery, tapestry work, etc. Knitting or crochet is also welcome as these, of course, also use “needles”.
At various times, members have been making curtains, altering hems on skirts or trousers, making Christmas decorations...or even working on a Portuguese tapestry carpet!
The group meets every Wednesday from 11am till around 5pm, meeting in each other’s homes, where the hostess of the day provides a light lunch. Those who wish to can also finish off the day with a gin and tonic. We are a friendly group and would be very pleased to welcome new members.
Monthly meeting at Member's home.
See Newsletter for host's name and meeting details.
