Happy Christmas to Everyone

At least the snow provided time to create this little chap. Seasons greetings and hope you all have a Happy Christmas and a brilliant New Year!!

It is with sadness that we have to advise that Margaret Downes, a very experienced and talented embroiderer, and a member of the Harrogate branch of The Embroiderers' Guild has died recently. She was a delightful person, always willing to join in with whatever we were doing, and a regular visitor to the Stitch and Chat sessions at West Park URC each month.

The photograph above was taken at the branches 30th birthday party in 2009 and the inset piece of embroidery is a Ruskin Lace needlecase made by Margaret.

We will all miss her very much.
