We had a wonderful day yesterday at the Wales regional meeting. It not often that we are able to meet the South Wales members as the terrain makes it difficult to have meeting often. I have found myself meeting the same people each year and getting to know them better each time. It was fun and well worth being rather queasy on the journey to and from Llanidloes which is in mid Wales. making it more convenient for both groups.
Llanidloes is a small market town and unique in these days of towns full of the same shops, with small individual and interesting shops and a very good book shop with a variety of interesting books for quilters, stitchers and artists.
These two beauties are myself and Carol (McFee) co-writer of Stitching the Textured Surface with Lynda Monk. We spent all day together and we just didn’t stop talking about one thing and another, textiles being very high on the list.
The guest speaker was the famous Welsh artist Eleri Mills. For more details of the regional day please visit Croesew the North Wales Embroiderers’ Guild blog.
