I travelled to Amblecote, near Stourbridge in the West Midlands, yesterday to attend the get together arranged by the West Midlands Tatters.
I was welcomed by Chris Woolley and a nice hot drink after my semi-long journey in the pooring rain on the first day of summer!
It was very well attended and it was lovely to meet old friends and to make new ones.
We were entertained by the guest speaker, Mr Geoge Hook, who is the last mother-of-pearl worker left in Birmingham. He brought many samples of shells that the mother-of-pearl comes from and it was great being able to see them in the "raw" and also to handle them.
There were plenty of workshops and supplies by Mary Helen.
