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.

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 are trying out a new Guidance Group – Slow Stitch starting on Thursday 8th July

We are on track now for our exhibition, brought forward from last year but now up and running on Friday 10th – Sunday 12th September. Up, Up and Away! is the theme and it should prove to be very well worth a visit, as usual.

More about these will be announced as the time nears.
