Happily, my very last stay at Urchfont was a lovely occasion and, yes folks, the sun shone!
Group photo with tutors – Sandra is on the far left sitting next to Melanie and Alison.
Dawn is sitting second from right, between Daniela and Carrie. I’m sitting in the centre between Sheila and Jane – just incase you didn’t recognise me!
Standing, from the left – Ros (sometimes known as Pam). Viv, Anne, Alison, Sue, Lesley, Jenn - peering over Meg’s shoulder, Jackie, Stephanie, Pam and Gwen .
Lasting memories of Urchfont – stitched pieces as a gift to me - made by members of Sandra’s class who were working with digital imagery. Such a moving present. Hankies were used.
Last coffee in front of the large fireplace in the foyer –starring, from the left, Alison, Carrie, Daniela, Anne, Sue, Viv, with Jenn and Meg kneeling.
Last lunch, starring all the colourful salad dishes.
Lovely sunset from the Stableyard, looking over the carpark.
Thank you to our wonderful two tutors, Sandra Meech and Dawn Thorne for giving such interesting workshops. You’ll see from the pics on the Distant Stitch Summer Gallery that all enjoyed this special event. I’ve put a few here for you to see some images of the last Urchfont Summer School.

Lesley – “Shall I rip this here?”
But please note that next year we will move this event to Farncombe Estate in the Cotswolds, (just south of Stratford on Avon). The dates will be Friday 5th July, starting at 16.00 until Monday, 8th July after lunch. This will be the same length but will straddle a weekend to make it easier for many of you to be able to attend.
