It was a lovely sunny day yesterday for the GWE visit to Cotswold Woollen Weavers. The sun certainly made the Cotswold stone buildings glow, a beautiful sight with the fresh spring greenery of the countryside. We were met by Richard the owner, who gave a short talk about the Cotswold woollen industry and Filkins the village. A good start to our new exhibition theme.
The looms have ceased to work here, but are very much in evidence in the weaving sheds, now mostly a museum. Lots of inspiration available for our design ideas, and members were busy photographing and sketching.
The cloth for sale in the shop is of a wonderful quality and woven in very traditional patterns. Needless to say I did buy a few bits that caught my eye.
Today I am busy celebrating the birthday of "him indoors" .... daughter baked a delicious cake.... no photo of cake .. sorry .... we have eaten it all!
