May Meeting: Visit from Richmond

Four of our friends from the Richmond Group came to visit on Monday for our May meeting and post-festival catch-up, and previous member Lesley happened to be visiting as well.  It was a glorious sunny day for our first daytime meeting this year and it was great to have a good turnout of our members who brought along soup and finger food as well as their show and tell.
 Noelene and Judy have a chat and Joan catches up with Lesley
 Jan, Julia, Anne and Win . . . and the remains of a well-catered lunch.
 Visitors Pam and Sue enjoying their day out.
Esmae and Chris surveying some of the work on show.

Teatowels had been woven in cotton at various time by both Marlborough and Richmond groups so we were asked to bring along our examples . . . old and new.
 Many of these had been made for a group project in 2006
 Following which Barbara was inspired to weave some more, this time in different colours.
 Julia brought this elegant twill one in muted blues and greens.
 Two of our members had participated in another group project/exchange, this time in linen with a huck pattern.  Beautiful articles from some excellent weavers, these ones are still unused but much appreciated.

Show and Tell photos still to come so keep watching.
