It was the meeting day for the Great Western Embroiderers yesterday. Always an occasion to enjoy.
Work from the exhibition was returned and some surprise last minute sales were also announced for some of the members. So a joyous occasion indeed.
To help the celebrations along, on of our very talented members offered to coach us in the techniques of stump work. We were making a leaf and a blackberry, great fun was had by everyone, and we had a bumper attendance helped by visitors inspired by the Malmesbury exhibition.
One of Maureen's finished pieces of work.... what talent. Thanks for sharing your expertise with us. A great deal of discussion also took place amongst the members about our next Exhibition ( spring 2014)... lots of new great ideas.... what this space nearer the time.. I will share the details with you.
Talking about Exhibitions..... if you are travelling to South Africa this summer.. I really recommend you go and see my friend Penny's Exhibition. Her works is truly fantastic, and you may remember seeing her gold work when she exhibited with us at Lydiard House in 2010. Details are below this photo of her wonderful gold work.
