SHAZAM! 50 Magical Years 2018

Our last biennial exhibition celebrated our 50 years of stitching:  our Golden Anniversary.

1001 Arabian Nights was the theme and there was lots of Gold as well.

Held at the Vines Road Community Centre at 49 Vines Rd. Hamlyn Heights.

From Friday 14th to Sunday 16th September 2018.

Our guidance groups stitched furiously to produce some amazing group entries to the challenge of the theme. Canvaswork, Patchworkers and the Textile Arts group GeeTAG are amongst those involved. Individual members were also invited to submit something to fit the theme. The Canvaswork Group’s tiles won the Visitor’s Choice award.

Brenda Ryan won the individual Visitor’s award with her fantastic Rackham Cloth

We bring our lunches, chat and exchange ideas and sewing tips.

We also have access to the comprehensive library collection and are able to see what classes are coming up in the future. This year has already seen some wonderful work from class members and there are two International tutors lined up for later in the year

Education is an important part of our Guild actitivities, passing on the traditional and new styles of embroidery. Classes are held throughout the year and prove very popular including our recent Summer School ones.
