Yesterday the knitting ladies met again at the Museum in Hanley. We have been given money by the council (at least, I think it is from the council) to use to encourage people to enjoy crafts using wool. The lady running the group bought 2 weaving looms and is now looking for a teacher to show us how to use them, that should be very interesting.... well, I'm interested, he he
This is the quilt being made by the group as a tribute to Wedgwood, apparently it is 250 years old this year. It will have a backing fabric and it will be quilted, hopefully, in time for a grand unveiling next Saturday. I shall miss that though because I am going to Harrogate Knitting and Stitching show... I still don't know how I am getting there, but I am going, for sure!
When the exhibition finishes in Hanley Museum, Wedgwood have shown interest in having the quilt on display in Barlaston... this information made the ladies very happy!
