Stitchfest at Ardingly saw the launch of our Crystal Swan as she glided across our table accompanied by Young Embroiderers’ & members work.
She caused a great deal of interest and much praise, especially when Teresa explained the detailed construction process.
Our Alphabet Tiles continue to draw interest and clearly had given inspiration to other Guilds.
The show cases were a varied delight. It was a great opportunity to talk to fellow stitchers and share stories of creativity. I came away gaining ideas for future projects but had also shared my knowledge to encourage others.
This Funky Chicken was created by Margarita as an example of a YE project.
There were many sumptuous stalls to peruse and purchase from. These colourful threads from Weavers Bazaar were a particular favourite.
Many ladies were heard to say ” I’m not going to buy any more,” but we did.
Our thanks must go to the organisers who I hope had time to enjoy the exhibition as it was a long day – but a positive and encouraging event.
