No crafty make this weekend as I went to my Embroiderers Guild Regional Day yesterday. What a great day. The exhibition of work shows what a talented group of people the Embroiderers are. Two branches were exhibiting. I attended a brill lecture by Jacqui Carey, on Elizabethan Stitches, it was fascinating to learn how stitches developed and how they made their patterns. There were also demonstrations of smocking (did you know that you can get a smocking machine), lace making, crewel work and quilt making. The raffle prizes were bags of crafty goodies. You placed your raffle ticket stub in the box by the one you would like to win. What a great idea! That way if you won you got something you would use. I didn't win one though.
There were also stalls of traders - one sold secondhand books and old patterns. I couldn't resist, so came home with these.
And also these buttons, cause I reckoned I didn't have enough buttons at home!!!
Hope you are having a great weekend.
