Following the AGM at our October meeting we had a very interesting Talk by MEG Chair Vicky Williams entitled “Liverpool Cathedral Embroideries. The photographs do not do the exquisite goldwork stitching justice, so it is well worth your while to visit the Elizabeth Hoare Gallery at Liverpool Cathedral and see for yourself.
The Chair’s Challenge competition was also judged today. The theme was “Your Favourite Green Space in Merseyside” and the winner was Diane Moore. Congratulations Diane! The theme for Chair’s Challenge 2020 is “Precious Jewels”

We have recently enjoyed a Workshop with Nikki Parmenter “Fantastic Fish”. The workshop was well attended and we had some fantastic results. Nikki brought along a stunning array of her latest work. You can see some photos of the day here. If you missed the Workshop then there is another chance to see Nikki’s work. She has a solo exhibition at Williamson Art Gallery, Slatey Road, Birkenhead, CH43 4UE from 5th October t0 22nd December 2019.
It was National Stitch Day 2019 on Saturday 22nd June and Vicky, Hilary, Liz, Karen, Brenda and Dilys met up in the magnificent setting of the Great Hall in Speke Hall, Liverpool for an afternoon of stitch. Brenda brought the Endeavour cloak and we had our MEG banner as examples of stitch. We were working on the slips for our ongoing Tudor Speke project. Visitors showed a lot of interest in our work and some had a go at some stitching. Photos available to view, just click here…

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.
