Returning to a great community venue

Our welcome in Frodsham last year was astounding: so many people, so many friends, so many textile enthusiasts! This is a great community venue, well-known to many textile groups from quilters and embroiderers to spinners, weaver and dyers – plus the Braid Society. Here are some pics from World Textile Day North in 2017.
