Fantastic exhibit from Westtown School during ANG Seminar time

Hi everyone,

Just a quick note.

While I was investigating Philadelphia I came across an exhibition of Quaker samplers, pinballs etc on display while the ANG Seminar is being held. The exhibition is call "In Stitches" and is being held at the West Chester Historical Society building in West Chester 25 miles from Philadelphia. Ellen from the Society let me know that they can be visited using public transport from 69th Street bus stop. The opening hours are Wednesday to Saturday 9.30 to 4.30pm until the 7th September 2012. For a sneek peak Ellen Chester of "With my Needle" fame has posted room photos of the pieces after gaining permission from the organisers. Click here to take a look. This is a once in a lifetime chance to see many of the Quaker samplers from the Westtown School all in one place. If you are attending the Seminar see if you can find the time and let others know of this delight.

Bye for now, Carol
