Out and About

Weaver Gallery, LedburyToday we are wandering round  the textile exhibition in the Weaver Gallery in Ledbury where the girls from Stitch in the Middle put on an exhibition called ‘Living in the Middle’; we persuaded Hilary Beattie to walk us round and give us some in-depth construction details  and we also met some of the authors too: more to enjoy next month.
