Visitors on Monday

Margaret’s friend Jacqui brought a special guest to the Weavers’ Workshop. She is from Thailand, studying English here in the U.K. and is a weaver.

She brought some fantastic fine work to show us. The cloth is so colourful and the items you see here are tops and skirts.

This was presented to the Weavers’ Workshop which is just delightful. The decorations are not beads but seeds! What a lovely gift. This will be framed and mounted and held in high esteem by the members of the Workshop
