I' m getting really fed with all this precipitation but the good news is that we had a successful Exhibition at the end of June - don't think we are going to break any records but we had a lot of lovely people come to see our work and talk with us.
Speaking of the work the standard, variety and breadth of the work was excellent - there was something for everyone so well done to you all and a huge thank you to all that helped in whatever way to make the Exhibition a success.
One of the real highlights for me and for many others was the work of our Young Embroiderers' who had chosen to use York's 800th centenary celebrations as inspiration and gave us a spectacular view of costumes throughout the ages - fantastic!!!
Another highlight for many of our visitors was our Competition "A Cushion fit for a Regal Bum!!!!!" It was hard this year. Moira who had organised this thread of the Exhibition sent me the answers on the Monday after the Exhibition and it is solely tardiness on my part which has made you wait so long for the answers but here we go:-

Please accept my apologies if I have got anything wrong it was and is unintentional.
