Open Day 20 March 2018

What a highly successful day! It was busy! We received so many compliments on our achievements, and Helen’s expression on being informed that her “bedsheet Challenge” piece had been sold was classic! Alison was doing a roaring trade with her glorious cyanotype pieces, and Kim had a number of Bargains on her table… I caught up with an old friend I hadn’t seen for years, which was fabulous. For those I didn’t get a chance to speak with, please accept my apologies! It was lovely to have Kate amongst us again, but so busy there was barely time to speak . Then all too soon, it was all over. The food was spectacular and plenty left over! Donna was a trooper, being first inside the door and with the most colourful table, she drew the crowd, and seemed to be surrounded by interested ladies  much of the time I had a chance to look her way. Brenda was doing a fine job of demonstrating her inktense pencils and allowing ladies to have a go! I was not so organised, just managed a few rows of stitching by machine and the rest was talking! Ryl’s table was surrounded by people too, and Jill eventually managed to squeeze in a cup of tea at a late stage! .Helen had plenty of things on display, her table had oodles of things for people to look at! . Jan and Kate along with Di were on the far side of the room  with a constant stream of visitors surrounding them and see what they were up to. I didn’t seem to see much of Kate who was behind one of those pesky columns holding up the level above….

Here is a meagre offering of photos I did manage to take…

    Congratulations to you all Reddy Artists, and thank you soooooooo very much for sharing your creativity with us. It was most interesting to hear the origins of your challenges, how you developed your amazing Brisbane piece, and to learn the definition of Sue Duffy’s gorgeous Celtic piece – such exquisite stitching. Also loved the challenge using different techniques,the Shibori, mixed media, blimey where do I stop. You all have filled my soul with such joy, and loved meeting up with old friends, and meeting new ones

    We all left the venue on a creative high, arriving home 31/2 hours later than we thought.

    Again, warmest congratulations and thanks
