The Weavers Spinners & Dyers exhibition was really good - over 100 entries, and a fantastic display, with the opportunity for visitors to have a go at weaving and spinning. There were 9 entries in the annual competition - Beautiful Birmingham. A challenging title - I'm sure that a lot of the people who voted for it at the AGM didn't make anything to put into it!. But my waistcoat, woven in one long piece on my 9 inch reigid heddle loom came second. First prize went to Wendy's hat based on a murmuration of starlings seen over Birmingham, and third prize to Janet's woven picture of a fruit market I spent a lot of the time on the sales table - but sales were disappointingly down on last year - I'm hoping for more success at Rowheath Craft Market on 17 November
