Rachel Lombard was our speaker at the end of last month. She emphasised the need for notebooks and how expensive materials are not necessary to make beautiful work. I wish I'd taken more photographs of her work but there are more samples on her website.

Next month's morning session starts at 10.30 and will explore Dorset buttons. Stranded cotton, a needle and a brass curtain ring are all that are required. A reminder too that Leeds Flower Show at the beginning of August has a new category of "Machine Embroidery" in the Crafts Hall. All entries welcome!
The Regional Meeting at Riccall was a great success. The two speakers were very entertaining and our branch won two prizes for "Underground" and two of the embroidery bag raffle prizes.
