Welcome to the Exeter and District Branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild.
WE ARE VERY SORRY. ALL MEETINGS HAVE AGAIN BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO THE INCREASED RESTRICTIONS CAUSED BY THE COVID SITUATION
Message from Lyn, our CO-Chair
“In these difficult and different times we are unable to have our AGM so we must take it that you would like it that NIcky & I carry on as your Co-Chairs and that you are happy with all the decisions we have had to make. We will carry on as best we can for you all and will try to keep you updated as much as we can. Nicky and Ruth are looking into Zoom and I will update you on that when I have any details. We also have the WhatsApp group that Laura set up and if you would like to join please let me know and I will send her your mobile number. We also have the Facebook page, and Cheryll would like any photos of work you may have done- again I can let you have her email.”
If anyone has projects they would like me to put on the web for individuals to try, let me know. see our new PROJECTS page
We are a warm and welcoming group of textile enthusiasts who all love to sew. The information below explains what happens in normal times:
If you are curious about sewing but feel nervous about threading a needle, come along and see what we do. We have all sorts of abilities from people who have just learnt to knot the thread, through dabblers and experts to textile artists. What we share is a love of threads and fabrics. Most of us have stashes of both that we just like to look at and then put away again in case we spoil it! If that strikes a chord with you please come and join us.
If you have no experience, lots of experience or anything in between and enjoy meeting like-minded people to talk, share and learn, you would be most welcome.
Each month one of our members leads the meeting. (There is never any obligation to lead so don’t worry!) They show you a project or a technique to try with lots of examples. You can look and listen and then do your own thing or have a go yourself. Our members are very generous with their knowledge and materials. You don’t need anything more than scissors and needles to start and we have a mini shop with materials at cost price and actively encourage recycling. We also have a textiles book library, DVDs and relevant equipment for hire.
You can come to two meetings without joining; just paying £2 per session before you decide.
So, what are you waiting for?
Ring up or turn up and you can be assured of a warm welcome.
