Jill Goodwin Friendship  Day


Our Jill Goodwin Friendship Day at Grange Barn, Coggeshall is held every two years in honour of Jill who died in 2013 aged 95. She was a founder member of our guild and reported  as a ‘National Treasure’ by the Journal.  She was also internationally known for her Dyers Manual as well as being a prodigious spinner and weaver.

This year it’s on Saturday 20th July 10:30 – 4pm.  Please bring your lunch and a mug – hot and cold drinks will be available free – cakes for a donation.

There will be a sales table and other guilds have been invited to bring their sales table too.

Grange Barn is a National Trust property and entrance on the day will be free for guild members, so please bring your membership card.  Sign in at the ‘Meet & Greet’ table to receive a ticket as proof that you don’t need to pay an entrance fee.  I would be good if members could wear a badge with their name and guild on it.
