I have been with the West Bridgford Embroiderers Guild group members giving a talk and then a workshop in Pictorial Machine Embroidery. They made me very welcome and were of course an incredibly talented and lively group of stichers and textile enthusiasts. They were the first group to see my book and it was received very well with genuine excitement, it got very positive comments and lots of oohs are arrs over Cescas photographs. I had a lovely time with them. Next week I visit the members of Chelford and North Cheshire branch of the embroiderers Guild and then I go to Cowslip Workshops in Launceston.
I love meeting and working with groups of enthusiastic stitchers and seeing what delights they embroider with their sewing machines, each piece each student of the workshop makes is an individual piece unique only to its maker. I am very privileged to have the opportunity to meet and work with so many talented stitchers.
Then I am on holiday for two weeks, so this will be my last posting for some time.
