On Monday we spent an interesting and enjoyable day with Machine Embroiderer Jan Tillett.  Jan had travelled from Devon to speak to us in the morning about her work and methods and show us the many samples she had brought with her, and teach some of her techniques in the afternoon.  Jan is a very kind and generous teacher and we all got a lot out of the day.  Below are a couple of photographs of some of the things we managed to produce in the afternoon.

Our next meeting is on June 20th.  This is our OPEN DAY AND EXHIBITION.  This year is the 20th Anniversary of the Hardy Quilters and there will be Quilts and other stitched textiles on display as well as a Tombola Table, Tea and Cakes, Raffle and Sales Tables.  We hope to welcome lots of people and maybe sign-up some new members too. We are all looking forward to it and working hard to arrange a  fun day for everyone.  Do come along and bring as many friends as you like!!
