Sue Cranwell's Braclet

As Sue was setting up for the evening she kindly
donated this amazing raffle prize.
One of her hand made embroidered bracelets
in it's own gift box.
At the end of the evening everyone was excited
ready for the raffle draw.
I think everyone was crossing their fingers.
Sue Coombes won and she was absolutely thrilled.
When her husband came to pick her up,
she showed him her new bracelet and introduced
Sue to him, now Pete is a an appreciative husband
and admirer of craftmanship
and immediately thanked Sue for her work.
A lovely evening alround.

Alveva Quilters

We were so lucky last night to have Sue Cranwell as a speaker.
After the business of the evening and a show and tell
where Meg showed us some new fusables,
Liz showed us an Antique Welsh Quilt
and a small one she had finished and hand quilted herself.
Jenny had just managed to sell her buisness.
Linda had rushed in the door because she had just finished a two
day course with Jan Beeney,
Linda then showed us her landscape!
I showed the group my Metal Mystic wallhangings.
Aswell as a Round Robin being swapped,
Two quilts being assembled and a book sale.
WOW! what a mixed group.
Sue talked about her family background in textiles and how she had arrived at where she is now with all the twists and turns in life
and how tragic events spark you off in different directions.
Her work is inspirational and so interesting
to hear the ideas and concepts behind what she had brought to show us.
We had a lovely evening.
See Sue's work and that of the group she belongs to at
