It is on display from 12 June to 1 September. To view the web page please click on the name of the museum.

Saturday 2 June

The morning will be a stitching and chatting session – working on the group, or an individual, commemoration piece. The Chair will bring fabric, threads and needles so we can make a start on the Peterloo hanging – easy whipped running stitch on marked fabric, nine pieces for completion.  

If you’re taking part in the ‘100 Hearts’ project, or you’ve started your own commemoration work, please bring that.  In the absence of any of these, why not re-start a UFO?

 Anne Brooke ( will be our afternoon speaker.

7 April Meeting 2018

Sorry for the delay, I have been to Scandinavia.  It was great and I saw much interesting stitchery.

In April Pam led a workshop on Goldwork.  It was very inspiring and everyone worked well.

Here is my finished goldwork, thanks Pam

For those not attending the workshop, Sue ran a "Stitch Challenge"
