Tavistock Embroiderers' Fair

Last week we attended the Tavistock Embroiderers' Fair.  Tavistock is an ancient stannary and market town in West Devon situated on the River Tavy.  The Embroiderers' Fair was up to it's usual high standard and it's members are very talented. 
Sweetbag, pin cushion and scissor case by Maureen King.  She used Back Stitch Wheels, Star Stitch and Laidwork.  Exquisite.
 One of a pair of walnut purses by Denise King.  Very fine work over a walnut shell.  Amazing.
Woodmice by Christine Christensen.  Stunning.
A big 'thank you' to the lovely ladies of Tavistock Embroiderers' Guild who looked after us so well.
We stayed at The Mary Tavy Inn, Mary Tavy which is 4 miles from Tavistock.  Excellent accommodation, excellent service and excellent food.
