Overlockers with Ann Kingdon

We had a great time putting our over lockers through their paces and many thanks to Anns' patience and expert knowledge achieved a great deal in a short space of time. . 

Hopefully we all know how to thread our machines now and are able to put them to good use.

Dorset day

Many thanks to everyone in the Swindon group of West Country Embroiderers who helped at the Dorset Day event. I think we all really enjoyed ourselves. Our mini exhibition in the centre of the room was well received by everyone.

It was also wonderful to welcome Maggie Grey ( president of WCE) and her husband Clive.

Before we opened the doors some of our members having a chat, it was so well organised, and the traders were buzzing.
Anita Bruce the speaker was brilliant and we all enjoyed her talk. We were also very fortunate to have booked her for a workshop the next day. We really had a wonderful time.

Here is a selection of the sketchbooks we made at her workshop.
The raffle at Dorset Day  raised a lot of money which was donated to Parkinson's UK ( Swindon group), this is Mags and I presenting the cheque to Dave Logan, Chairman of the group.
