The National Exhibition of the Association of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers was held at Leigh Spinning Mill in September. https://www.facebook.com/Leighspinnersmill/
Here are some photographs about the exhibition.

Leigh Mill is undergoing a transformation. The renovation project is very ambitious and will provide a wonderful outlet for creative talent. It is very much a work in progress.

|Two general views|
|A wall of discs - the fascinating interpretations using a disc.|
Unfortunately exhibitors had asked that images of their work are not shared on social media so I cannot add the rest of the photographs that I took. However, one member from Durham Guild had a disc on the wall display. Anne is one of our oldest members and a founder member of the Durham Guild of Spinners Weavers and Dyers.
After viewing the exhibition we walked along the canal to Leigh town centre.
