On Bank Holiday Monday I joined the other volunteers at The Framework Knitters Museum for their Workers Play Time event. Usually I take my spinning wheel over to the museum but this time they asked if I knew anyone who did any other sort of craft. I admitted that I did know how to make bobbin lace and offered to put a display together with lace pillows where people could have a go for themselves.
It has been a while since I touched my lace making equipment and I spent a few evenings working on a strip of Torchon lace just to get the feel for it again, after all, no point trying to show people how to do it if I've forgotten the basics myself!!
The green bookmark is one of the pieces

Spinning was represented along with quilting
rag rug making
and natural dyeing.
The sun stayed out, the local community choir entertained us and a great day was had by all.
