Out and About,Harrogate

Mary, Clare, Judith and I battled our way through the crowds at the Knitting and Stitching show on Saturday. Never mind a map, I think I need a compass as well to find my way about. I saw lots of old friends,too many to mention but they all send greetings to Bolton. I joined a Japanese embroidery class which was interesting. I failed at the first hurdle as I could not knot my gold thread!!!!002 There were many shops but for once I went with a shopping list and tried to stick to it. There were some interesting exhibitions and I was really taken with a d beaded piece by Alice Kettle. HQ had a much higher profile there this year. I wish that I had longer to spend there as the postcards were displayed again. I have taken a couple, one of Bulgaria for Bolton and the other of Kiribati for Padiham005

006Can you spot your piece?

  1. Glad you enjoyed the show. I hope you enjoyed your Japanese embroidery taster class even if you failed to knot your gold :-) If you are tempted to have another go, at a more leisurely pace Japanese Embroidery offer two day taster classes.

    (I think they are just setting up other classes in the North, so please do contact them if you are at all interested)
