January Meeting

Today was a members day so not so many of us present.  Everyone was working hard despite the coolness of the room as the village hall are having problems with the boiler!
I missed the December party as I had a nasty bug and was confined to barracks but everyone who attended enjoyed it.
I also missed the November meeting as I was on holiday in India.  What a spectacular place of stitch inspiration!  I had a wonderful time and can recommend it to anyone interested in going.  Because I was away, I missed the workshop with Helen Barnes making Bronte Needle Rolls.  There were several of these being finished off today so here are a few of them.

These are the needle rolls

Helen was doing this interesting piece, stitching into strips of painted fabric.

Diane's lovely piece of print and stitch.


  1. Hello,

    my name is Tanya, and I'm based in Leeds and specialise in medieval embroidery. I take part in Leeds university International Medieval Congress every year, and have been teaching medieval embroidery and opus anglicanum techniques at the Ashmolean in Oxford and Lakeside arts in Nottingham for several years now. Last week I gave a talk for the embroiderer's guild in Broadwell, Oxfordshire.

    This is my blog

    and facebook group
    I'm teaching a one day workshop at the friends meeting house in Acomb in may, and wondered if you would be kind enough to let your members know about it, tickets are here

    THanks, Tanya
