June Meeting

An interesting meeting today as it had been suggested that as a group, we should maybe pull out of the Embroiderers' Guild as some members were not sure what the advantages of being in the Guild were.  However, I am pleased to say that we had an almost unanimous vote to stay as a Branch of the Guild.  After this discussion we had a fantastic talk by Maggie Smith.  I must admit that I have been waiting for this one all year and it did not disappoint.  She brought loads of work for us to look at and gave us lots of ideas for inspiration to break the 'Embroiderer's Block'. 
On Sunday afternoon, Wrelton Village Hall held a craft fair and we had a table to display work and another one to sell items.  We managed to sell several of the books from the old library which we are now trying to dispose of and met some of the other groups who use the village hall for their meetings.  Hopefully, we also recruited two or three new members so that will help to keep our numbers up next year.
Below are some photographs of Christine's quilt that she has made for her grandaughter, it is really lovely.
