January meeting

It was good to see everyone  at the start of our New Year.  Hugh  Barton had been invited to come and talk to us about the Embroideries of Lancaster Priory Church. He gave a really informative talk about these works, all designed and worked by his parents of whom he is immensely proud.  His talk was illustrated with a large number of slides  and of course he brought along samples of work. I was particularly interested in the original hand coloured sketches.


Lesley then assembled pieces brought along for out Market Hanging.  Next month we hope to see many more pieces, either completed or wanting advice.  The meeting will focus on this. However Barbara will also bring her ideas for the memorial panel in memory of Nancy.


Members were reminded about the Jacobs Feast on Sat.30th Jan and the materials needed to attempt foam marbling. {Phone me if you have forgotten}  Other dates  for our diaries are  9th April, National AGM at Nottingham,  17th April Regional Day in Manchester and Summer School, Alston Hall, 15th to 18th  July.Members are being encouraged to participate in the Buildings and Architecture competition at our Regional Day.
