CONTEMPORARY THREADS, a new textile arts group based in Liverpool

A group of stitchers who are members of the Quilters Guild and/or Embroiderers Guild have set up a new textile arts group, Contemporary Threads, which will meet at St Michael’s in the City, Upper Pitt St, Liverpool L1 5BD on the first Saturday of each month, from 10am – 2pm.
Any stitchers who are interested in textiles and mixed media are welcome to join. The aim of the group is to provide mutual inspiration for creating beautiful pieces; to encourage each other to stretch ourselves; and to share ideas and techniques.  We also aim to arrange occasional workshops and speakers.
You can join via the Facebook page, Contemporary Threads or by contacting the group’s Chair, Maggie Pearson  (email: maggie.pearson1@btinternet.com). 
COME AND JOIN US!

Dilys Parry in Kendal 2017

June to view the Quaker Tapestry. We had a very enjoyable day with sunshine all the way! The Quaker Tapestry Exhibition Centre staff were very friendly and informative, and the cafe served delicious food as well! Unfortunately we were not permitted to photograph any of the embroideries, but many thanks to Gill Roberts for the lovely photographs of our group.
