Steve Pretty Making Braids

Wednesday evening it was the once a month meeting for
The Kings Lynn Embroidery Guild.
This month Steve Pretty was talking and demonstrating
Braid and Cord Making.
He has an extensive collection of equipment for
making Braids, Cords and Narrow Wares,
(anything woven under 6").
We were in for a surprise when he handed out
packs of thread and a card hand loom for us all to use.
He showed us how to use it and we were away.
He divided us in two groups and one half had to
carry on braiding and the other half he showed us how to
make cords.
We had a really interesting evening,
Thank you Steve.

Several of the members are Exhibiting at
The Kings Lynn Museum from the 2nd of July until
August 2011. It is worth a visit.
