This was an excellent day out enjoyed by all of those who went, not too taxing on the feet as the venue was The Great Yorkshire Showground in Hall 2 and was not too spread out with plenty of room for us to walk around and enjoy the exhibitions and there were some very interesting ones. Some examples with variations of the 1817 quilt which were very interesting. Of course, there was also some retail therapy which we all had to take part in. Many thanks to Deborah and Jane for their hard work to make this happen and we look forward to our next outing.
Birmingham – The Creative Craft Show
Here we go again, another excellent day out although it was longer we had an early start being picked up at 8:00 am on the Green Cottingham. We made good time until we came to the turn off for the NEC and then we just joined the queue of traffic to the car parks. Despite the rain travelling down it had stopped for us to walk into the NEC (although it was not far from the coach). We had another good day, enjoying the exhibits with a break for lunch watching a fashion show from some City & Guilds Students. There was of course the obligatory retail therapy and many interesting purchases were made, some people also appeared to be encouraged to take up sewing again. Thanks again Deborah and Jane you are doing excellent work to keep us happy.
