Kim Wright on Swindon’s Local Community Radio interviewed Lorrain Lockwood, Nikki Vesey Williams, Ann Smith and Ros Lomas in a joint discourse in the run up to the exhibition. He was interested in finding out about the 50 year pin awarded for long term membership of the Guild, about Branch involvement with national events such as Capability Brown, about the wide ranging activities associated with embroidery and textile art and about the Anniversary Exhibition displays and exhibits.
