Stitch Day


It was wonderful to catch up with everyone today, and chat about items bought at the NEC show in Birmingham and the great exhibitions seen there. To chat about the on line sketchbook workshop that some members have joined for the April session with Dionne Swift. ..... and generally to stitch, sew and be messy. As it was the Easter holidays, we also had a few younger artists join us.... in fact the 6 year old had such a wonderful time, she asked if she could come again next time. ;o).... Ideas and designs are starting to emerge for the next exhibitions we have set up.

Stumpwork -

To celebrate our recent very successful exhibition at Malmesbury, we settled down to a meeting of stitching and learning some new techniques of stump work.. many thanks to Maureen for sharing her expertise with us. We had great fun! Will stump work be a feature within our next exhibition? ...............maybe!

Thanks also go to Margaret G for the most wonderful lemon drizzle cake.... made the meeting into a true celebration. Work which did not sell at the Exhibition was collected by members and lots of discussion took place about details of our next exhibition  Spring 2014. Watch this space! We also warmly welcome 3 visitors today, and are pleased to announce, they have joined us. A big welcome and we hope you enjoy stitching with us.
