Our AGM this month was full of national, regional and branch news.
It was followed by a talk from Ann Ford entitled 'Cutting Edge'. Ann was fascinated by the wooden edging to the roofs of small local railway stations in Cornwall. She sketched them and at a later date used them as design elements for her work.
But the exciting news is that we voted in favour of changing our day to day name to 'Silk Town Stitchers'. This came about after our successful day standing at the local monthly market in Macclesfield in July as part of National stitch Day and the comments from visitors to our stall. It is a more inclusive name and should dispel any elitist notion that the word Guild implies.
Here we are in the height of summer !!! Left to right, Margaret, Maggie, Ann, Jackie and Ann.
Despite the rather wet weather we stoically sat and stitches even though our fingers were like ice.
