Queenie Festival

Once again the weather was kind over the weekend and we only had a couple of showers. 8000 people came over the weekend and our stand created a great deal of interest. (It was situated close to the tea, coffee and cake stall that is always extremely busy which helped). Our stand was very welcoming with some beautiful work on display to talk about. It looked both  attractive and colourful with all the 4 inch squares and photos of the postcards that Jane had produced, on our beautiful new display boards.  When it was all in place the helpers stood back to admire it and were aware of being very proud to be part of such a talented group. They were kept busy explaining how various pieces were worked and encouraging people to join. We are hoping to have a few new members from our endeavors. Many thanks to everyone who found the time to come and help. We could have done with a few more!

What a range of different techniques and interesting things to show off.

Our Laxey Wheel came in for a lot of admiration.
