|I was particularly impressed by their beautiful "ceremonial" table fall (top left), |
which reminded me that Pendle needs to finish their own!
There were demonstrations, and traders to keep our purses busy, and more beautiful work to admire in the displays for the Coats Anchor Competition and the Rose Bowl competition. This year the theme of the Rose Bowl was Under the Sea which resulted in some stunning interpretations.
|"Under the Sea" entries - the amazing creation (left) by Sandra Kendall of North Lonsdale Branch|
was the well-deserved winner.
After a magnificent buffet lunch we were entertained by a talk by JuliaTriston, author of books including "Contemporary Applique" and "How to be Creative in Textiles". She is also the creator of the Bra-ra dress. She sewed it on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square using bras donated by many different celebrities. We also got a glimpse of her "knicker bunting"!
Altogether an enjoyable day - well done Bolton! J.
