Exhibition at Bainbridge Quaker Meeting House highlights talent

-The Bainbridge WI display.

An exhibition at Bainbridge Quaker Meeting House over the weekend of June 15 and 16 highlighted some of the talent there is in Wensleydale.

It provided local people with a showcase for their gifts and skills with a range of crafts.

There were multi-coloured crocheted shawls, patchwork throws and cushions in many patterns, paintings in watercolour and oil, jewellery, embroidery displaying fiendish stitchery, knitted jumpers plain and patterned, hangings, bags, upcycled items and whittling, rag rugging and a display of cut flowers including roses and grasses.

The largest display was by members of Bainbridge WI

The most unusual item was probably the stove made from a gas bottle, which was created and used by Mick White many years ago.

By the end of the weekend, 88 people and two dogs had visited the exhibition.

And for those who were there before it closed, there was an impromptu poetry reading by Malcolm Corps from his book Words from Wensleydale – A Collection of Rhyming Poems.
