Update – 17.02.18

After a slightly longer break than anticipated I am getting back into the Update habit – but they might not be as regular as last year ……

Branch Meetings

Next Saturday is our first Stitch on Saturday for 2018 – as well as the informal stitch and chat there will be a planned activity for those who are interested: read more…..

Friday 2nd March – Branch Evening:

My Embroidered Life – Lana Young   How several accidents of fate led Lana into embroidery, and how the work “just grew, like Topsy”! She is still in a state of surprise that it took her to Kiev, New York, Artist in Residence in a museum and a school, Edinburgh Botanical Gardens, and The Royal Opera House……

Julie and Paula’s Crazy Patchwork workshop on Saturday 3rd March is probably all booked up, but you might still be able to sneak in.

There a still a couple of spaces on our April Workshop with Tanvi Kant – a new name to us but her fabric jewellery ideas look really appealing ….. a great way to use up some of those precious scraps and make a wearable memory.

Update Oops!

I made a mistake with the Branch Evening information posted in the 17.2.18 update – the link to last years “Absent Friends” session was wrong – the post has now been corrected and the topic for Friday 2nd March is:

My Embroidered Life – Lana Young

How several accidents of fate led Lana into embroidery, and how the work “just grew, like Topsy”! She is still in a state of surprise that it took her to Kiev, New York, Artist in Residence in a museum and a school, Edinburgh Botanical Gardens, and The Royal Opera House……

My apologies for any confusion.
