We had a very enjoyable evening at our Strawberry Tea. Not only did we we have our usual scrumptious eats (Strawberries, Scones, Meringues, Butter Tarts, Vanilla Terrine and more) but we also had our visit from Tracy Gill. Tracy is the Learning Officer for the Rachel Kay Shuttleworth Collection at Gawthorpe Hall.
Tracy brought a superb range of lace samples from the collection to show us. She spoke briefly about each piece and explained the Inspired 2012 project that some of our members are planning to take part in. She wanted to give us plenty of time to take a close look at the pieces and to take photographs of any that we would like to use as inspiration for our pieces.
We are not allowed to show any of the images of the pieces on show and can only use the photographs that we took for our own personal use for the project. Hopefully we will be able to show photographs later in the year of the pieces that our members have produced.
We felt very privileged to be able to look at the pieces on display.
We had a good turn out of members for the evening and some visitors as well. We do hope that they enjoyed the evening and plan to visit us again very soon.
Anne Burrow is our speaker at our next meeting on July 30th speaking about ‘ Family Connections Through Textiles’ – knowing Anne it will be a very interesting talk.
