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…

CONTEMPORARY THREADS, a new textile arts group based in Liverpool

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.
