Inter County Craft Day

A few weeks ago we welcomed a few of the northern Federations to the West Yorkshire Federation office for our Inter County Craft Day. We welcomed Durham County, South Yorkshire, Tyne & Wear South, East Yorkshire, Cumbria-Westmorland and Teesside Federation for a day of talk on craft. The Inter County Craft Day is a meeting to welcome new ideas. As the hosts we shared all our ideas and allowed the other Federations to give us their thoughts and ideas for their upcoming events. In the afternoon, our Home Economics and Handicrafts Committee Chairman hosted a talk also.
