The Mayor opened the exhibition for us and we were very grateful for his enthusiastic opening speech. The Swindon Advertiser were also in attendance they published a full page review with 3 photos, we were very pleased. You can read the online version here. The Exhibition was running for a month and was well attended by embroiderers and visitors to the Museum.
Here are a sample of the photos taken at the exhibtion.
We had our meeting today at the Blackthorn Centre and concentrated on Lazy daisy stitch. It was incredibly relaxing and fun to work with a simple stitch.
