Craft fair 2012 October 27th

Craft Fair at Little Holker Hall, Cark

On Saturday we had a stall as part of the craft fair in Cark.
This year we kept to smaller items some with Christmas in mind.

 The day was a very beautiful crisp Autumn day and this seemed to bring more people out than last year. The selling was steady throughout the day  and those who helped on the day had an enjoyable time.

Thank you to all members who made items, worked on the stall and/or bought items. All monies raised will go to our funds to help support the cost of workshops.

October Meeting 2012 AGM, Talk by Empress Mills

After our AGM we were treated to avery amusing and interesting talk on threads by Christine Driver of Empress Mills. She told us a little about the history of the family firm and how it had needed to adjust to changing times in order to survive.
An assortment of threads were passed around for us to handle.
The main message was "that you need the right thread to do the right job."

We then had a good time while we looked through all the exciting things Christine had brought and most of us found something we simply possibly had to have!

It was a good way to complete our AGM day and thanks must go to Christine Driver and her two helpers. 

Sandra K. brought her Lutradur piece, started at the last meeting, to show everyone. It was based upon Furness Abbey and Sandra had printed some of her photographs onto Lutradur painted with gesso.
The stonework was then cut out with a soldering iron.
