Doughty’s Roadshow 2020
One of the highlights of our calendar is the annual visit from Doughty’s of Hereford. They pack their capacious van with a rainbow of fabric: batiks and blenders, sprigged prints and solids, wide backs and a wealth of novelty prints. Oh, and not forgetting all the rolls of batting and interfacing you could possibly want. A fabric feast!
We welcomed them to Mereside bright and early on Saturday morning and many hands made light work of setting out the hall. The servery was laden with delicious cakes and everyone had a fabulous morning stocking up on beautiful fabric and chatting with friends over tea.
As the event is open to the public we make a small charge on the door in aid of our charity - this year it's Siblings Together - and, along with the takings for refreshments, we raised well over £200.
An enormous thank you to everyone who lent a hand - or a cake - and to Doughty’s staff who are always so brilliantly organised. Finally, a date for your diaries: they’ll be back next year on Saturday, the 20th of February. See you there!
