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...

Inbetweeners - Janice's Gift

One of our members, Janice, has a twin sister. 
To celebrate their 60th birthday this year, Janice made her sister a stitched "photograph album" of special occasions and memories which she gave to her sister as a birthday gift. 

This is part of the album cover, embellished with buttons and a key

All of the pages are decorated with Janice's beautiful hand-stitching. 

I'm sure that Janice's sister appreciated this fantastic labour of love, 
which contains many hours of planning and meticulous work.
