We set up Friday night and as usual there were a couple of technical hitches which needed sorting out but by the morning apart from making the tea and coffee and setting out biscuits and cake everything was ready apart from visitors.
The weather was good and gradually people began to arrive and view our work and chatter over a drink.
We tried something a little different this time and had a few mini diplays of skills or topics for embroidery and you can see a few below. These were very handy for chatting to people about our work.

Our sales table did very well and helped raise money for our funds.
Thanks to the generosity of our members we had some good raffle prizes.
We served tea, coffee and home made biscuits from 10 until 3.
There was a steady stream of people throughout the day and they were very appreciative of our group's talents and skills and made very positive comments.
A couple of people might come and join our group and they will be made welcome.
Our Regional Chairperson Val Coleshaw also visited and it was much appreciated by our members that she had travelled all the way from Bolton.
It was a successful, if tiring day, and thanks go to all our members for their hard work and generosity.
