Joy Norman is participating in ART HOUSE LEICESTER this year - it's a new event for her, and she is really looking forward to it. Art House Leicester offers a different take on the art trail. This trail takes you through the Clarendon Park area, with houses taking the place of galleries. There are 9 houses in the trail, with over 60 exhibitors. Joy will have a selection of work on display at 8 Burlington Road - if you are free that weekend, it would be lovely to see you. 
The dates and opening times are:
Friday 9th June 6.00pm to 8.30pm
Saturday 10th June: 11.00am to 6.00pm
Sunday 11th June: 11.00am to 6.00pm
(The venues will not open on Monday this year)

Thank you to lots of members who took some great photos at Regional Day, which you can see here. At the Regional Day, Erica and Nigel spoke about uploading photos using Google photos and we asked members present to take photos on the day and add them to this collaborative album. 

As you can see, this was a great success and gives a good impression of the day. It is still open to add more photos if you have any. Please share this album on your Social media pages to promote The Guild and Embroidery. You can use the same method for Branch and other Regional events. For help and further guidance please contact Erica.

There is a presentation on Google Photos on the Gallery page

"Sonia's Stall"

Sonia's family and friends would like to say a huge thank you to the East Midlands Regional Committee for allowing us to hold the sale of Sonia's embroidery materials at Regional Day. We raised a staggering £1,102 and it was Sonia's wish that all proceeds be donated to Hayward House Hospice in Nottingham where she spent 5 weeks or so just before she died.
