Against all Odds

Against all Odds

Yesterday we arrived later in the day than usual, to put up the display at Living Crafts, as the weather was so dreadful when we were about to leave home. Most people had stuck to their usual timing and had almost finished their displays when we got there, and left while we were putting the finishing touches to ours. We were so glad we were there late. The sky darkened and the wind increased in strength and the display boards throughout the tent began rocking and banging against the marquee walls. We quickly removed the last of our fans and looked on in horror at the hail stones, blown under the ceiling, melting on the tables where the boards had stood!

Today was a little better. It was cold and we had some heavy showers but we all enjoyed making lace together and were happy to have such a huge amount of interest shown in our lacemaking. The ‘Have a Go’ pillows were a huge success and we were able to hand out details of lace classes around the area and put people from further away in touch with the Lace Guild.
