Would anyone like to assist this lady?

 The following message was sent to us from the Merseyside Region Details page of the Embroiderers Guild website. From: Helen Raynor Email: helendavies25@live.co.ukMessage: I wondered if you could help me? I have been completing embroideries for many years. Recently, the gentleman who laced and framed them for me, has passed away. I wondered if you could recommend anyone who could do this for me? I live in the Warrington area, but am happy to travel to anyone who is recommended. 

Hot off the press! Gill Roberts went to NW Regional Day in Chelford and won First Prize in NW Region Rose Bowl Competition 2015 with her embroidered corset. Congratulations Gill!

The Years At The Spring

The year’s at the spring,

And day’s at the morn;

Morning’s at seven;

The hill-side’s dew-pearled;

The lark’s on the wing;

The snail’s on the thorn;

God’s in his Heaven— All’s right with the world!

by Robert Browning
