A flying visit to Madeira in Yorkshire
Karen Burrows, Managing Director of Madeira
Whilst Bill and I were travelling up to join our Members for our Ackworth Weekend, we popped in to see the team at Madeira. By now, you all know that I use Madeira threads for all my kits and for designing projects for Itch to Stitch. Karen, pictured above, certainly did not have time for this but was so hospitable and sat and had a coffee before leaving the UK for another European visit the following morning! Thank you Karen – I was very lucky to catch her at all……..It was lovely seeing the team hard at work on a Friday afternoon and good to put faces to the names we speak to every week.
We had a wandered around the very swish offices and warehouse and even saw how our cones are wound – Bill is pictured above, not understanding the technology at all! After collecting some threads we went to the Hilton Leeds City for our weekend event – more of that later
