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...

February Workshop - Print, Collage & Stitch - Anne Brooke

We are very lucky at Halifax to have such talented members, many of whom are successful textile artists in their own rights. 
One of those is Anne Brooke, who is a hard woman to pin down! As well as being a school head of department, Anne has just opened her own textile studio in her garden, as well as giving talks and workshops to other groups, and demonstrating at shows such as Art in the Pen at Skipton, so we are grateful to her for sparing the time for her fellow members! 
Here they all are, hard at work...
















And here are the photographs of the (huge amount of) work done at Anne's workshop on Sunday. 















Members said how much they enjoyed the workshop and several went home and carried on working until they had finished their hangings!
