We were welcomed with tea/coffee and we were informed drinks would be on tap all day.
There was a variety of exhibitions and demonstrations including patchwork, smocking and lacemaking.Anyone who wished to buy material or threads to add to their stash was able to go to the Trade Stands.
The host branches of Kirkby Lonsdale and Appleby had mounted a beautiful display of their work and we were particularly taken with the boxes.
The raffle prizes of filled bags were set out in one of the rooms and looked very appealing but all of our members were unlucky!
The competition pieces were displayed in another room.
We were well looked after at lunch time with a nice meal and particularly tasty puddings.
After lunch we all settled down in the hall to listen to a very interesting talk by Jacqui Carey on Elizabethan Stitching.
It was a very enjoyable day and all thanks must go to the host branches.
