We were welcomed and hosted by Rochdale branch at this years  regional day.Seven of us attended from Bolton and I know we all had a lovely time. After depositing entries for the competitions I had a quick look at the stalls.DSCF4489Ruby sends her love to all at Bolton and so do Charles and Christine.

DSCF4490Sadly due to my competition role ,I had no time to re visit the stalls but at least it meant that I saved money!!!

The morning speaker was Gillian Lonergan who explained all about the Cooperative Heritage. Meg had highly recommended Gillian and her judgement was spot on.DSCF4506

A delicious lunch and then our afternoon speaker,Anne Brooke told us of her”journey”. What an interesting and eventful life. Much of Anne's work concentrated on her love of seed heads and I recommend that you visit her website to see pictures.DSCF4531

The competition for 2016 [our year] is Under the Sea. Don't forget we will also need to enter pieces for the Journal cover as well.This will be judged at the OCT AGM  2015.

Prizes were awarded to the Young Embroiderers and the Rose bowl which was won by Sandra Kendall of North Lonsdale.The Coats Award was judged by a committee member and the afternoon speaker and i was delighted to announce that Barbara Ryall won the first prize for her Venetian sketch book. Brilliant!!!!DSCF4523
