Together We Stitch – Hilton Hotel in Bradford

We had a lovely time at the Hilton in Bradford- thirty guests for the weekend and numerous day ladies for the Saturday. Our room was lovely and spacious and had plenty of daylight.

A lovely day was had by all – I know some of the group stayed locally and continued to enjoy their weekend treat!
