We are a friendly group of people who are interested in many aspects of textile art, who meet on the last Friday of every month apart from August and December between 7:00 - 9:00 pmThe evening usually starts with coffee/tea and biscuits, then any business (such as plans for the branch, news of exhibitions or other relevant activities); then we either have a speaker, or a practical evening, or a mixture of both.
In addition to our Friday evenings, we also hold Saturday Workshops, run by invited speakers/tutors who run these practical classes and in the past have covered many different aspects of textile art. The workshop fee is £25. Non-members are welcome if there are space places. The fee for non-members is £30, which is great value, as you can pay in excess of £100 to attend a workshop.
We also hold Saturday Stitchclubs. These are run by the members for the members for a nominal fee of £5 to cover the hire of the room. Our members are a gifted lot and we've run a huge variety, for example: in the past we have had an introduction to braiding, spiral beading, hand patchwork, felting, Christmas Decorations, collage and Jacobean stitching.
Exhibitions and Craft Fayres
Full membership for 2016/17 will be £50 and Dual Membership £20.
