Guild on show at Shelswell Festival

Village festival-goers had a chance to see what we do, and have a go at spinning, weaving and braiding when they visited the Bucks WSD guild stand at Shelswell History Festival in July 2022. The colourful display of samples attracted lots of visitors, while others were attracted by the equipment being used. Guild members endeavoured to answer the myriad of questions asked and encouraged potential new members to come to a meeting where they will be sure of a warm welcome.

It was a delightful, varied festival with a bit of everything – vintage vehicles, re-enactment groups, a pipe band and traditional games. The ice-creams were particularly delicious!

We were delighted to be invited to this local festival and hope to be able to show off our enthusiasm for textiles at plenty more events in the future!
