National Sewing Day

For the National Sewing Day we were given the use of some premises belonging to Altringham Forward on Shaw's road. Altrinham.
As it was a lovely sunny day the glass sliding doors were fully open and relays of us spent a few pleasant hours showing our various embroidery skills to passers by, despite a little competition from a flower stall outside.
As well as having the turquoise squares on display, members had each brought one or two pieces of their own finished work.

Some of the work being done was to exhibit or sell in September.some were sewing  the silk squares forRubina Porter, and others were working on their current project.
