The Three Shires Festival has started and we spent last Friday (10th July) putting up the exhibition at Quarry Bank Mill, Styal, Cheshire.

Bill and Joy hanging the last picture at the exhibition. It looks very impressive and members of the public completing the tour of the Mill can find it in the last room they visit. Well worth a day out to find out about the heritage of the local textile trades of Cheshire and surrounding areas as well as the social history connected to the Mill. The Three Shires Fetsival is in full swing and there are numerous things to do locally so for anybody interested in embroidery/textiles it is a must.
