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...

April Playday - UFOs

There were only a few of us at our April Playday - I think that the glorious weather may have had something to do with that - but we got lots of sewing done and had a good chat, and Vanessa provided some glorious chocolate cake. 

Jane was busy on her machine all day, sewing together some quilts she had unearthed whilst packing up for her imminent move to North Yorkshire. They look great - maybe she'll use them in her new summer house / studio (yes, I'm a little bit jealous...)

She's behind there somewhere!

Liz was relieved to complete her froggy zentangle from last year's Branch Challenge...

... she also finished a delightful wall hanging that she started at a Marna Lunt workshop.

Janice spent most of the day making sample cards from her new set of Brusho dyes and came up with some interesting effects, she then did some more work on her Peacock from the Circles Playday. 

Vanessa was working on her vibrant "60s" book which she started in the "splinter" book-making group 

I love the titchy pattern on these pages!

And Mandy did some more work on the never ending scrolling landscape from last year's Regional Summer School. Nope, not finished yet.
