Never one to look on the negative side the Doodly Birds decided that, I should go and help out at the Embroiderers Guild Cream Tea as it looks like we are not going to Art On The Prom.
The weather forecast for Sunday predicts wind and possibly rain and the poor things didnt want their feathers getting ruffled after they had worked so hard preening themselves for the great day.
St. Andrew's Church, Smith Street, Rochdale was the venue for this lovely event. Lots of people came in after they had watched the Olympic Torch pass through the Town Centre.

Members displayed their work, there was a sale of fabrics, books, stitch magazines and haberdashery bits and pieces, a raffle where all the prizes were based on the theme of flowers. Even the table decorations were raffled off at the end.
The Doodly Birds are on full display in their Studio in Whitworth.
Email me if you want to visit, or have a look online in the Doodly Store
they are perching on some new lines now.
