(No. 1) As well as member's own stands, weaving was displayed by art school students and 'hand weaving by factory designers and factory woven stuffs designed on hand looms'.{15} In addition some allied crafts were exhibited and listed in the catalogue including hand-blockprinted textiles by Phyllis Barron, Dorothy Larcher and Enid Marx, together with embroidery by Eve Simmonds. (No. 2, 3) Rather nearer to home Barron and Larcher also showed regularly in the exhibitions of the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen which started in 1933; Barron was a founder member, and was elected Chairman from 1958-64.
