Meeting at Waltham…..

by Rosie Lundgren

The LINQS DH meeting at Waltham Windmill on Saturday 22nd August was a great success . After a brief business meeting the day was given over to sewing and making/meeting new friends. The Waltham ladies made us very welcome and shared lots of ideas with us so we have all come away with inspiration for gifts we can make for Christmas presents and other occasions.

When lunch time came most of us were intending to head for the tea room but our hosts informed us that they were laying on lunch for their visitors. What a lovely feast we had and it was finished off with the most delicious home made cake, obviously ladies of many talents!

We couldn’t leave without a visit to the shops, including a fabric shop and a sweet shop plus a quick tour of the museum which is full of treasures from every day life. The wonderful smell of freshly baked bread, on sale at the Mill shop, meant it was too good to resist! All in all everyone agreed it had been a lovely day.

The  following photos show some of the ladies who attended the meeting as well as a selection of their work.
