One of the great things about organising Yarningham has been making links with other stitch-y organisations in Birmingham.
One of these is Birmingham and District Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers (BGWSD) based in Cotteridge. They got in touch about seeing if they could attend the show to attract new members.
BGWSD meets once a month, on the second Saturday at The Friends Meeting House, Cotteridge. They have speakers, workshops, members days and an annual exhibition. It’s a great place to come for advice or just to meet and chat other like minded people. They welcome all interested in our crafts and related textiles, whether an enthusiastic beginner or highly skilled.
Members of the guild will be demonstrating their skills within the marketplace at Yarningham. They’ll be on stand 12.
