Thanks to Ros, who led a very successful session on looping the loop, we worked with blanket stitch and buttonhole stitch. Ros showed us a lots of wonderful examples to whet our appetites and encourage us to experiment with fabric and thread.
GWE was formed in 2007 to serve the Swindon and North Wiltshire areas of the country. We are a very local group and we meet in the daytime at a venue in Cricklade, . We enjoy stitching together and exhibiting our work at local venues. We also enjoy activities and workshops organised by an enthusiastic committee.
