Geographically we are in the region of Brunels famous Great Western Railway (GWR), so we decided to use this fact in our name. The rail network is often affectionately called Gods Wonderful Railway by train enthusiasts. Hopefully, we will live up to the "wonderful".
My intention was to help set up a group of artist and Craftspeople, who would like to support each other, learn from each other, hopefully exhibit together and offer an opportunity to network with other artists and crafts people. When I spoke to Kath about it, she had similar aspirations, so we have worked together to facilitate the opportunity. We are affiliating to the West Country Embroiderers, which I think will be a mutually advantageous association.
The meeting was most successful, and I really enjoyed meeting so many like-minded stitchers. It was also good to see so many fellow bloggers. Gill, Sue, Anna and Jackie ---great to see you.
Our next meeting is on October 9th same place and same time..... have a look for more information on my website on the side bar. If you live in the area and are interested.... then please let me know. Cannot wait until October 9th.........
So guess who forgot to take her camera??? Sorry....... hopefully I'll remeber at the next meeting.
