Taking a break.
I 've been awayfor a sunshine holiday so there was a Bloggap. In the meantime, some of you will have received the programme of fairs for this year with brief details of dates and venues. Undoubtedly the star event will be on Friday, July 6th, 2012 at Yarlington House, nr.Wincanton, a beautiful early Georgian mansion in a lovely park with delightful and romantic gardens. It is owned by Count and Countess Charles de Salis and they are both deeply interested in textiles and needlework. The event is by invitation and the entrance fee is £5. or £3.50 in advance ( all of which goes to the two charities, MacMillan Cancer Support and The Royal School of Needlework.The Countess is a past President of the School) If you would like to join our mailing list for an invitation, please contact me by Email with your name and full postal address - email@example.com Everyone on the mailing list will receive all dates of all fairs etc., in March. You may remember the Needlework Festivals that were held at Yarlington in the past, so you will know that this event with talks and demos by the Royal School will be extra interesting. They were closely involved in the lace and embroidery for the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding gown. There will ALSO be the popular Rag Bag stall where everything will be sold for Charity, so please start collecting surplus fabrics, wools and anything to do with dressmaking and sewing NOW! Delivery dates later on. This is an ideal outing for a minibus group! and there may be some extra surprises included in the entertainment!
