2018 Annual Exhibition information

The theme for 2018 will be ART DECO NOW!  This universally admired and accessible design movement is the inspiration for the annual members’ exhibition 2018.  Try googling and you’ll be bombarded with ideas for stitching.  And if you like the challenge of creating a small piece, think about what you can do with ‘All That Jazz’ for the 2018 Challenge.  More news in the New Year.  Dates to be confirmed but likely to be 6 – 20 October 2018.



Learn, create,
stitch, make friends

Beginners welcome.
