The Embroiderers guild met at St Nicholas Chapel to discuss the exhibition we are putting on in July. The Rainbow Wall Exhibition is on Saturday 13th of July and Sunday the 14th. Not only will there be the exhibition but stalls and make and take too.
I want to thank the customers who have been in for one to one workshops. we have had fun. these workshops included making Christmas baubles and mixed media books.
On Sunday we had a fabulous workshop with Pauline Wrighton teaching us how to be more creative with out sewing machines and what all the feet are for. Pauline introduced us to a new book for Bernina machines explaining all the feet and tricks to make us more successful when using them. My lovely sister has ordered me a copy.
The shop at The Barn is now called EBS Retail. We spent a couple of days and a long evening laying carpet and moving the shop around to make it more appealing to our customers. It is also much warmer now that the carpet is down.
