Dear Helen,
Hope you have now thawed out after the chill of last weekend but wanted to thank you for your intrepid work with the weaving in our Sheep to Cloth event and also for your support in our other activities. It was much appreciated and we’ll certainly think of you again if we repeat the event in the future.
