Urchfont Open day

(Judith Butt - C & G Machine Embroidery with Lynn Horniblow)

It was promising to be a very rainy day yesterday, especially as it was the men's' final at Wimbledon, but with some eagerness we drove to Urchfont in the middle of Wiltshire for this yearly textile event. It was really lovely to meet up with so many of my friends. Some were finishing their C & G studies, others were exhibiting for their group.

Judith is more usually known to the rest of the world as chairman of the Computer Textile Design Group, and but she also took her turn at manning the CTDG stand as well.

Look here for the CTDG website

It was lovely to see Textile21 exhibiting , a group who I have great affection for. Also good to catch up on all the latest gossip from the members.

Here are Pat and Sue from Textile 21

It was great to see all Anna's hard work which she has completed as part of her C & G in Historical Heirlooms course. See what Anna has to say about her course here.

Janet Crowther has been running the Historical Heirlooms course at Urchfont this year.

Hazel Credland also finished the H & H course and I thought this work was superb.

The rain decided to fall out of the sky as we were walking back to the car, and then I tripped over a pothole in the driveway... ouch! Lots of bruises today. However I did enjoy my "trip" to Urchfont. The tea and cakes were excellent!

How lovely to see all this great work and most particularly to have a good view of Anna's beautiful Historical Heirlooms pieces.

I hope your bruises are healing up - so glad you didn't break didn't, did you?
