CONTEMPORARY THREADS, a new textile arts group based in Liverpool

Any stitchers who are interested in textiles and mixed media are welcome to join.

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.
