Our Ruby Celebration Exhibition of Textile Art and Embroidery is under way!

This week I was thrilled to receive confirmation from Amber at Creative with Workbox that they had published an article written by Chris Cook in their January/February Edition.  Lorraine Lockwood helped Chris with the details as she was a member of Marlborough and District Embroiderers Guild 40 years ago.  Several items of her work are mentioned in the article together with some photos.  The large red embroidery is the work of Lindsay Sherwood.

Christmas Lunch with Elinor Kapp

Picture

On Monday we enjoyed our Christmas “bring and share” lunch.  The Committee members prepared the hall and Susanne taught us to fold the serviettes in an unusual way.  So many turned up we had to rush around and lay places for an extra six people.  The meal was delicious.

The recent Kantha workshop samples were on display and there were a lovely selection of prizes for the free raffle.

After the meal storyteller Elinor Kapp, entertained us with stories, stories and more stories.  She has written a book, Rigmaroles and Ragamuffins – unpicking words we derive from textiles.  Elinor reminded us about everyday phrases we use but yet we don’t think about their origin.
