Last Saturday I resigned from being the Chairman of the Ring of Tatters.
When I was appointed in 2008 I said that I would serve for five years and only stay in post if there were extenuating circumstances - well in 2013 the Ring was involved in the Lace 21 exhibition of all laces at Waddesdon Manor which didn't finish until last October. We had agreed to make tatted snowflakes to decorate one of the rooms at the Manor for the 2014 Christmas season. These snowflakes were donated by our members and were sold for charity. This was all done by April so I have now resigned. I hope the Ring finds a new, younger, forward looking volunteer to take over and build on the work I did over my seven years.
