What a busy show at Olympia!

Bill and I have just returned from the Stitch and Craft Show at Olympia after a marvellous four days. It reminded me of how the shows used to feel and so many congratulations  to the team at Twisted who organised the event.

Loads of members and non members called to see us – all a very positive experience. We had a vast stand with Madeira Make and Take at one end. Our classes were full to bursting and I know the organisers were very pleased indeed.

Spring Stitching at the Hilton Hotel



Working on a tulip project

This was a lovely relaxing stitching weekend with lots of finished projects to be viewed at lunch on Sunday. A great time had by all! The design was that of a single tulip flower with the option to stitch it in blackwork, pattern darning or cross stitch. As always, some guests worked all three!
