The Blog of the Halifax Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild, meeting monthly on the first Friday at the Maurice Jagger Centre, Winding Road, from 6-9pm (Meeting proper starts at 7pm)
We are a group of women (but men are welcome!) who have an interest in textile art and embroidery. We are of mixed abilities and there is no need for you to be able to sew to come and join us - there are no tests!
New members are always welcome - why not call in and join us as a guest for a few months?
Meeting fee for visitors is only £5.
Our meetings vary - we have talks and workshops, show and tell - we also have lots of weekend workshops and playdays. For details of what's coming up (and what's been and gone!) check out our programme below...

Competition Success for Cynthia!
Big congratulations to Halifax member Cynthia Smith, who entered several pieces into the competitions at Regional Day, and won a runner's up prize of £25 for her piece in the category "Ten", which also had to include some background work.
The standard of entries was, as usual, very high, so well done to Cynthia for continuing in our Branch's success in Regional Competitions.
Entries will be on display at the REGIONAL EXHIBITION at RIPLEY on 14th - 15th JULY
