Marlborough EG Visit to Salisbury

Our Marlborough Embroiderers Guild Outing this year was to Salisbury where I had arranged for us to have a tour of the Embroideries. We were able to go into parts where the general public couldn't and we had a wonderful time seeing the kneelers and the beautiful frontals. It was especially exciting for me to get a closeup look at the beautiful Energy frontal by Jane Lemon. It is a favourite piece of embroidery of mine. We started off having coffee and biscuits in the Cathedral coffee shop and there was plenty of time after the tour to explore the rest of Salisbury including the museum with it's collection of costumes.
