Our speaker was Carol Coleman. As she is a long-standing York branch member, she is well known to us, but her talk gave us an insight into the thought processes and methods she uses in her work.

She works in many textile techniques (although she expressed an exception to counted thread work!) but most of her work is free machine embroidery.
Carol loves a challenge, and recently was one of the Embroiderers' Guild members involved in creating an element for the Game of Thrones embroidery currently on display at Bankfield museum. This was a very interesting talk, that encouraged us to make time to experiment, and remain open to new ideas.
In other things . . .
Last month, Josie S won the Chairman's award for Shadow work technique, and this month Diane M won the Ida Barber Trophy.

A reminder that the Region AGM will be at 10:00am on Saturday 8th October, at Scarcroft Village Hall. Bring a packed lunch.
