Afterwards we were all encouraged to ‘play’ with the small samples of Blue Faced Leicester and silk noils Sara had brought; blending the two fibres on hand carders, blending boards and drum carders. Photographic evidence can be checked out in our Gallery, ‘Talks/Presentations’.
We were delighted to welcome some new members, together with a couple of visitors who were obviously casing the joint before deciding whether it was safe to join our motley crew. We are hoping that the cakes were persuasive!
We have a full year ahead of us with lots of great speakers and workshops. Members of the Guild are also looking forward to demonstrating and sharing their fascination with their craft with the public at various events around the county (see our Events page).
