Well, Encounter 18 is now behind me. I am so pleased and proud to have raised £600 for the museum, but oh it was so hard physically this time. Seven machines from the sock factory to load and unload besides normal event stuff. Only tiny niggles during the event, easily sorted or brushed off. Some people will complain about anything (lack of biscuits in room? as if I care?). One of the machines from the sock factory proved to be very different indeed, with an extra yarn carrier. Possibly used for adding a splicing yarn, and certainly no-one among the 60 there had seen anything like if-t before, but then I think we all have domestic machines.
