Regional Day

If it wasn't that you would miss a really good day out, I would suggest you book a weekend trip when the Regional Day is on because it is almost always a lovely sunny day and this year was no exception. We had two wonderful speakers in Serena Partridge and Nicola Jarvis.  Serena brought some of her tiny hand stitched shoes and gloves for us to look at and Nicola told us how her May Morris birds came into being.  As ever, lunch was delicious and there were several interesting stalls for us to spend our money on.  The competitions were well supported especially the young embroiderers whose work on William Morris designs was extremely good.  I won another bag in the raffle, I think this is the third one I have won and each has been amazing.  I have made lots of things from the items I have received and some have gone on to be sold at Branch events to raise money.
I'm afraid I didn't get photographs of the competition winners but they will be on the Regional facebook page, however I have got photos of the other entries and to say that these didn't win shows what a high standard there was.
Don't forget our exhibition on the 7th and 8th July in Snainton village hall, YO13 9BG from 10am to 4pm.  There will be lots more beautiful embroidery, a sales table, tombola and of course refreshments.
