Guild of Machine Knitters AGM

We had been asked if we would like to have a table at the Guild Day and AGM to display our work. We were one of 6 clubs invited to have a table.

We were also helping with the running of the day, mainly with the tea and coffees but also with the clearning up after.

It was a fantastic day. Over 100 people turned up. The AGM part of the day is over very quickly but it's nice to hear what they have been doing and it's not boring really. There were talks by Ruth Lee and Iris Bishop. The talks were very different, but equally interesting. There was also a fashion show at the end of the day, with members showing garments they had made. It's really nice to see what everyone had made. There was time in the breaks to look at the club displays, as well as the patterns brought along by designers, Fiona Morris, Beryl Jarvis, and Ann Brown. Iris Bishop also brought her patterns along and Ruth Lee put on a display of her work. Heathercraft were there with their yarns and spares.

We were all very tired at the end of the day, but despite the hard work it was very enjoyable. Next year the AGM will be in the Staffordshire area, so I doubt many of us will be able to get to it. But if it ever comes down this way again I'm sure I'll be there.
