A private ballot early in the year indicated that members were ready for a change and it was decided that we would go out this year, rather than arrange a party at our usual venue.
Members began to arrive at the hotel from 11am, enjoying the opportunity to relax and chat. At 12.00 we were invited into the restaurant where we enjoyed a leisurely lunch, followed by coffee and mince pies.
It was fascinating looking at images of beautiful, traditional designs and then seeing them reinterpreted and hearing Nicola’s description of how these had been achieved.
Personally I was so excited by it, that I ordered the book co -written on the subject, as soon as I arrived home. I can’t wait for it to arrive!
Our thanks to Kath R for organising the raffle for us this year, and for Dee for writing the blog. D.E.
