About 30 members of BTG's Northern Region, which is organising Fabric of the North, held a lively meeting recently in Halifax, which included an entertaining and informative private tour of Calderdale Industrial Museum.
Visitors came from as far afield as Teesside, Cumbria and Cheshire. Several of the lone weavers commented on the vibrancy of the local group (the Halifax Square Route Weavers), who joined BTG on a Group membership, and are submitting a collaborative entry to Fabric of the North.
Perhaps we should have more Group members? What a great way to bring together people who might otherwise go for months without talking with a fellow weaver. You can find more details of Group membership at thebritishtapestrygroup.co.uk/shop/btg-membership. And you can make contact with the Halifax crew at facebook.com/groups/319188405478051/
