Advancing the Art and Craft of Textile Embellishment

A talk, lunch and AGM on November 16th 2013.

As the main room was being used for a Village Craft Fair we were to hold our meeting in the small room at the rear of the village hall. The morning began with a very detailed talk with slides and samples by Ann Thomas who arranges our wonderful weekends at Plas Tan y Bwlch each year.

It was as though we were on a magical carpet ride as we experienced the people, the land, the wildlife, the fauna, the houses they lived in and so much more. We saw how they fished, how both the children and adults harvested the down from the Aida ducks that are wild but return to the same breeding spot each year. Then onto the land which was so breathtaking and contained some of the most beautiful wild plants and flowers that Ann had drawn.

This was followed with a annual shared lunch where each year member brings along a yummy dish and what a spread feasted our eyes.  Time also allowed us to have a wonder around the Village Craft Fair. Our afternoon began and ended with our AGM which went very smoothly. Our programme told us that this would be a very interesting day and yes it was just that.
