Out and About

Monday , 1st November was an important, but worrying  day for me. I had been asked to become Acting Chair for a possible new branch of the Guild. Kathryn and I had met with interested people at Gawthorpe Hall earlier but this was our first “meeting”. Monica Selway volunteered to come and talk to us.003004

We hoped for a reasonable attendance for were delighted when 35 people attended. Monica chatted about her love of embroidery, and the Guild. She began by showing us one of her earliest pieces{she could not find the cross stitched apron} and finished with a piece embroidered by her mother. I’m sure it inspired us all.008

We had coffee and set the date of our next meeting. Kathryn will show us how to make a Christmas decoration. Just bring along the usual sewing equipment. 2 till 4pm Monday, 6th Dec. Hope to see you there. Val, Acting Chair.
