Twenty members and friends descended on Blickling’s Muddy Boots Cafe prior to undergoing a custom-made, two hour, textile tour of the house and it’s attics.
What a treat to have the magnificent house to ourselves, to be led through cosy lamp-lit rooms, to be able to hear the melodic chimes of the hall clock, and to see at close quarters some of its textile gems. From huge Brussels tapestries to snippets of crewel work; from rustic weaving to exquisite embroidery – each piece had a tale to tell and our guides were knowledgeable and entertaining story-tellers.
Now let me see – where shall we go next summer ???
