Embroiderers Guild

Went to Somerset to give a talk about the Brunel Broderers to the South Somerset Branch of the Embroiderers Guild - what a warm welcome and such interest - we had a great time! The new 'Chair' Janet Hiscox sent this lovely thank you letter:
'Can I say a big thank you both for your talk on Saturday - everybody thoroughly enjoyed it, said it was wonderful to be able to hear easily (no I'm not saying you've got a big mouth) it just makes it so much easier when you have everyones attention which you did.
They really enjoyed the talk but loved musing over the embroideries and of course made absolute pigs of themselves taking practically all the badges.
I am sure we will be using more of your group members for workshops in the future so be ready for us!!
Anyway, once again many thanks and please let me know of any more exhibitions'.

New Quote

I found this quote recently and thought I would share it with you.
a rectangle of cloth
to wrap the baby; make the bed,
grace the meal and honour the guest,
to mop up a spill, encircle a waist,
screen the window and admit the breeze.
to proclaim a cause
to tend a corpse .....

Exhibiton Visit

Liz , Liz, Susi and I went to the current exhibition at Brewery Arts in Cirencester last week - it was well worth a visit. I particularly liked the work of Rhiannon Williams and Ekta so I have included some images. We had a lovely time -
