These pictures show the Members' Road Show, which took place at Sheriff Hutton. Members brought along their own collections or items they wanted to know more about. The morning was spent looking at the exhibits and talking to the owners about them.
Members with no Internet access also had the opportunity to see the website and to navigate
Lunch was provided by ladies of Sheriff Hutton and was, as usual, delicious. The highlight of the event was the cutting of the 25th Anniversary cake, baked and iced with our logo, by Margaret Cullingworth. This was also highly scrumptious.
In the afternoon owners of some of the interesting textile items on display spoke about them; others asked questions when little was known about their use or origins. Experts from amongst those present were able to share their knowledge with all of us and were often able to give much needed information.
This successful day offered members of The Society the opportunity to meet and talk to each other in a more informal setting than is often possible on days when we have a speaker or we visit a museum or gallery. We hope to include such meetings at approximately 18 month intervals.
