Felts of Fancy

Felts of Fancy opened to the public on 2nd October. By Saturday, one large grazed picture of 'Poppies' by Mairi Campbell had sold for £500, and two brooches by Katrina Stewart. That is an encouraging start!

 'Meet the Makers' Event on Saturday 5th October attracted a modest gathering throughout the afternoon. Those who came enjoyed the exhibition and a chance to talk with like-minded people, socialising and sharing technical tips. It seemed that the return to sunshine proved too much of a distraction after days of incessant rain, and people who accepted invitations to attend, did not come. Hopefully they will find time to do so while the exhibition is on throughout the rest of the month.
