Today's speaker was Melita Butterell from the Durham Cathedral Broderers who showed us some of the work that the Broderers do. If you have ever been to Durham Cathedral you will have seen some of the lovely pieces of work they have done some of which have been designed by Malcolm Lockhead. They are displayed all around and there are guided tours available on certain days. That together with the new space for the St. Cuthbert pieces makes a visit to Durham a worthwhile day out.
Below are some of the samples she brought with her for us to look at.
Melita was very knowledgeable about all the pieces and obviously very passionate about the work the Broderers do.
Meanwhile, some of the members were busy stitching in the morning and quite a bit of work got done. Here are some samples of it.
