Well all the hard work WAS worth the effort 'cos the Festival has been a resounding success. It was just great to see all the other groups exhibitions and appreciate all that is going on in the Swansea/Neath area. Everyone excelled themselves to reflect the theme of Childrens Literature with glorious colour, fabulous humour, clever inspiration, and of course, exquisite stitch. Not to mention all the street art would be a crime, I have been bowled over by the ingenuity? of how well it has withstood the vagaries of the weather and how children have interacted with it all.
The Makers Market and the Weavers Spinners and Dyers along with Rachel and Katrina attracted lots of interest with quality work for sale and on display, and they all said they would like to come back again to our friendly Festival!
So a huge thank you goes to you all for your contribution however big or small, it all counted in the success, for the fund raising, both for the Festival and for our Roald Dahl Charity, for the manning of the exhibition, I know many visitors were very grateful, and it was fun too to hear all the praise for all your fabulous work in our stunning exhibition. Congratulations to all who have sold their work, there is still time for more! Mark and the staff delighted with the massive increase in footfall.
So is it all going to happen again? A lot of interest has been generated and I believe that there will now be more people interested in joining in with all the work necessary for the management of the Festival. I will not be one of them but wish them every success in the continuation of the Swansea Festival of Stitch.
