A Stitching day

A most enjoyable day today with the Great Western Embroiderers.
We had the work from the recent Lydiard Exhibition returned to us, and we had 2,000 visitors, quite an achievement, and apparently this is double the normal number of visitors to Lydiard. The comments in the visitors book was very complimentary too.

The group asked me to give a workshop and demonstration about using the embellisher machine ( needle felter) see here  we had great fun, and I suspect sales of the machine will be going up this month, so many members saw the potential of this technique.

 I was also able to  give all members a quantity of raw Cotswold fleece, with details how to wash, card and spin. Many thanks to Edna of Cotswold Sewing machines in Stroud, who sourced the fleece for me. We were delighted with it.

 In the afternoon Pam took an interested group of our members along to the Museum in Cricklade, which they all enjoyed.
