On Friday evening we invited our husbands and a number of interested local people to a reception. The Committee made a delicious selection of canapés and the Mayor of Marlborough, Mrs Margaret Rose kindly agreed to draw the raffle. The South West Regional Chair of the Embroidery Guild, Val Rowe also came along to support the event and to view the exhibits.
Sewcraft from Swindon kindly supported us by bringing a wonderful selection of their fabrics, threads and general haberdashery. They were only planning to stay for three days but were so pleased with the arrangement they decided to stay for the complete time. Very few people left without making a purchase from their stand and we are very grateful to them for their support.
Below are the red squares that members made for the Chairman's Challenge together with a selection of the exhibits.
