News about our Sampler trip and more

Maggies class at Pinks Barn

As you can see many of the usual suspects are to be seen sitting around the table in the conservatory stitching and chatting – a lovely time was had by all.  This was an event to raise money for Maggies, our CSG charity and it was a lovely relaxing day. My next class (2nd July) is full  and the projec is a counted tile on linen . We do also have lunch with some wine and  a certain amount of fun!

Our Special Sampler Mini-Tour

If you have not caught up with this as yet, the details are on our Events page and will be included in your Stitch That Issue 86 due shortly. This trip has become more exciting  as we have been granted a special viewing of some of the 17th century samplers and other embroideries. This is something I have wanted to do for years so I am thrilled to bits. I am planning a fiendish piece of stitching for you to do during our evening classes so your time will be fully engaged!

I have recently had a meeting with Rainer Steinman, the Sales Director of Zweigart & Sawitski (the linen people)  and I have to admit to spending a small fortune with him yet again. I will be photographing the fabrics and adding them to the shop very shortly.

Happy Stitching till we speak again

DH has booked hotel for family dinner to celebrate his 70th that w/e. Don’t think it would go down well, if I went to Scotland.
