We have had an enquiry from a lady who says: ” I am looking for a person who will copy from a photograph of two Cavalier King Charles spaniels and put into a cross stitch which will be placed in a picture frame. I would be grateful if you can put me in touch with a person who is able to do this job.” Would anyone be willing to assist this lady?

Dilys Parry, one of our members, generously organised a trip to Kendal on Saturday 3rd
June to view the Quaker Tapestry. We had a very enjoyable day with sunshine all the way! The Quaker Tapestry Exhibition Centre staff were very friendly and informative, and the cafe served delicious food as well! Unfortunately we were not permitted to photograph any of the embroideries, but many thanks to Gill Roberts for the lovely photographs of our group.
