Suzanne brought lace that she is making for us to see. Several of us have lace and Suzanne was able to identify it for us and tell us about its construction.
Members brought brought their work and we had a very good display. This is Marian's.
And this is June's work.

So busy talking we never went to look at the local Coggeshall lace exhibitions.
Hopefully another meeting in the area can be arranged soon but if not we have Hornchurch in November to look forward to.
Special thanks to Sara for opening her house to us all. And thanks to all who attended for making it a really good day.

We visited The Manor, an amazing house dating back to the early 12th century , home to the children's author Lucy Boston and the setting for Lucy's Green Knowe books. The house is now lived in by her daughter-in-law Diana.
