Regional Day

I had a great time at Embroiderers' Guild Regional Day on Saturday - tiring though! This picture is taken just as Ray and I had finished setting up - funny how some people can't wait to start shopping!

This was Ray's first time helping me, and he did a sterling job manning the till and taking card payments, even if he had little idea about what he was actually selling! I didn't get a chance to take any pictures of the event itself, but you will be able to see pictures on Sharne's blog soon.

Now it is all over, I'm having to find room for all the goodies I had left over. I've refreshed the range of Valdani cotton threads - both the machine and perle varigated - with some lovely colours, some of which I've not had before. I've got some very pretty Oliver Twists dyed silk fibres, scrim (dyed and plain for those of you who have been asking for some) and threads including some natty little bags of threads and fibres called 'Tidbits'. Irresistible.

Also new are some great stumpwork kits by Sally Kemp.

I'm going to try and get as much of this as I can on the website over the next few days, so those of you who can't get to the shop, bear with me.

Once I've got everything back on the shelves, I have to concentrate on my C&G - only 4 weeks to get it all finished! PANIC!!!!!
