On Wednesday this week eight members of the Running Stitchers, plus a couple of friends, had a trip to the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery to see the Grayson Perry tapestries 'The Vanity of Small Differences'. We had pre-arranged for a guided tour with a talk about each tapestry which certainly made all the difference to our visit. We all just need to watch the Channel 4 video now.
There was ample opportunity to look around some of the other treasures in the Museum and Art Gallery. I particularly liked these tiles on display in the William de Morgan section of the Museum.
One or two of us also found time to pop over to the new Birmingham Library building which is amzing.
