The Patchwork Group were invited to join ladies from another U3A to go to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Harrogate. Some of us took up the offer and had a great day. We were treated to works of art of all kinds of crafts from some of the textile and fashion faculties from around the country. Demonstrations of all kinds of arts and crafts and two of us even produced a piece of embroidery work! The shopping was good and yes the afternoon tea some of us indulged in was wonderful.

It was worth the trip and in the words of the song “Here we are again home beside the sea, all good friends and jolly good company”.
