Priscilla Jones

Priscilla Jones treated us to a wonderful talk with lots of slides showing her work and beautiful drawings from her to degree work up to the work she is currently creating.  She also brought along a range of her embroidered canvasses, 3D sculptures and cards for us to see. Having seen her work featured in many magazines it was wonderful to see them in the flesh. Her 3D sculptures of cups and teapots, created from wire, fabric and wax, were particularly enthralling. Her subtle use of colour and amusing images made her embroidered canvasses very appealing.  What a delightful afternoon!

Regional Day

Several members attended the Regional day and what an enjoyable day it was. There were two excellent speakers and a much improved lunch. There were lots of wonderful entries for the various competitions and a member of the Harrogate branch won the "Challenge Cup". The theme was "A Confection" and Irene Earl created her own version of "Bertie Bassett" as pictured below.

I was particularly impressed with the number of entries by children for the “Pass It On” challenge set by the Ryedale Branch with the theme “Flowers”.
