Out and about, Gawthorpe Hall

Last Saturday, Patricia Sue and I met at Gawthorpe Hall for our second stitch and chat days. Patricia has done a great deal of preparatory work and we were eager to start. Unfortunately there was some mix up and we were without a RKS member of staff. Fortunately we are adaptable and able to offer some limited stitching. I took along my leaves stitched for the National Stitch day  and Patricia had loads of stitched samples.  We shared our threads beads and equipment. The theme was Zodiac so we identified our own and had a go. Two members of the public came in to see us but then access was limited due to insurance worries. However the two guests were full of praise and loved their day. I believe both might well join the Guild, one in Bolton and another at Parbold. We were a little disappointed but relieved that three of our members were unable to attend and we had a really good chance to chat. Our final date is in October.

A few reminders, everlasting landscapes anytime please but I hope to see some at the AGM in October. Any leaves to be brought there too. AND Fri Sept 12th, an invitation  from Gawthorpe Hall . to those who stitched the CBP pieces.
