NEC Birmingham, March 2005

Sewing for Pleasure Exhibition

Here Elaine is demonstrating two enthusiasms - tatting and canals! She is wearing the traditional bonnet worn in the 19th century by the women who lived and worked on the narrow boats. You can see more of her bonnets here.
Other volunteers on other days,
snapped before the throngs arrived.
Note the large circular Rose Window worked as a group project by the Heart of England Tatters. See our Lace Guild Exhibition 2004 page for a clearer picture of this and other tatted entries.
