All England Tour Part II - Photos!

Goldwork Stag at Hardwick Hall

Our All England tour drew to a close last week as we said goodbye to 20 wonderful ladies. We visited no less than 9 destinations of needlework interest and took hundreds of photos. While we sort them out here are a few to keep you going!

Thank you so much for sharing. I have myself been to Hardwick Hall so I can fully imagine your time there. Just beautiful!! Your Tours all look so wonderful and it so interesting to view them from the other side of the world (Sydney and sometimes Vancouver!). Maybe one day I’ll join you!!

Thank you for posting pictures from your trip. My heart skipped a few beats just looking. I would probably pass out if I were there in person!
