28th April – Elizabeth Semper O’Keefe, Hereford Cathedral Archivist: ‘ ” near the bridge of the Lugg as far as the water of the Lugg” – the River as it appears in the archives of Hereford Cathedral’

For the final session of the 12 week Lugg Embroidery project on its last Thursday morning, Elizabeth Semper O’Keefe came to present her findings of records of the Lugg in the Cathedral Archive.

It was really interesting and I know inspired me for future projects! I had not realised what a great resource the Cathedral Archives are. The unexpected is hidden away in there.

Thank you Elizabeth for this final treat, and for a very well prepared and delivered presentation.

Elizabeth is also an embroiderer and had attended the launch night of this project back on 2nd February 2022, so it was doubly appropriate to have her with us for the last session and she finished her stitched snowdrop just in time!

We finished with a celebration of tea and cakes.
