On the Saturday following Claire's Talk (see below), Branch members were lucky enough to be able to attend a follow-up workshop run by Claire at our meeting place, the Maurice Jagger Centre in Halifax.
Here are some photos of the work in progress during the day :
Above, Cath chats to Claire as Jan and Myra are doing some machine embroidery, and right, Sue is highlighting some of the detail on her design using a marker pen, prior to further embellishing it with stitch.
Above, Jane is working on her Thistles while Sandra (left) ponders her next move. Also shown are Janice's Daisy and the photo she is using for inspiration.

What talented members we have!
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...
