    Hi, I’m wondering if you can help me. I’m a Master’s Student at the University of Birmingham, and I’m currently writing my Dissertation on the subject of different methods of preserving and sharing knowledge about textile crafts. Unfortunately I am working next weekend from 11am so I cannot attend the full session, but is there any chance I could come for the first half an hour of your next meeting on Saturday 16th March and/or possibly speak to someone about how your Guild organises events and shares knowledge about textile crafts?

  3. Julie Jameson says:

    I have just come across your site and am interested in joining. I am very interested in fashion through the ages and enjoy making historical doll costumes. I like to sew by hand. I am not skilled in embroidery but would like to learn.
    I would like to attend workshops and upcoming talks. Thanks so much for any information you can send me.

    Very best wishes,

    Hi there, do you do any embroidery workshops for beginners?

    • Hilary says:

      Hello Kathleen,
      Thank you for getting in touch.All of our workshops are designed to appeal to beginners and the more experienced alike. All participants are taken step by step through each design and technique on the day. Also, in the morning before an afternoon talk, we have a Slow Stitch morning where we learn one embroidery stitch in the company of others along with plenty of conversation and light refreshments. Have a look at our website and see what is available on the Programme Page, then come along and try it out. You may enjoy it!
      Best wishes,

    We are looking for someone who can repair and restore an altar frontal. Our beautiful red and gold frontal has not been used for many years as the condition has deteriorated so much. Our church is St John the Evangelist Knotty Ash, Liverpool. I wonder if this is something your guild could take on board?

    • Hilary says:

      Hello Susan,
      We have sent you an email,
      Best wishes,

  9. Jennifer Buckland says:

    I am just revisiting embroidery after over 50 years. I am not very confident but I am interested in your group. When do you meet? Once a fortnight, month? Even though I don’t have many skills it would be an opportunity for me to meet other interested people. I have recently moved here, from Skipton, to be near family. I would be grateful for more details.

    • Hilary says:

      Hello Jennifer,

    What a talented group of embroiderers. The theme of Speke is so rich for inspiration.
    Loved all the work. And congratulations to your young embroiderers, they have a super future ahead of them. Amazing!

    • Diana Hudson says:

      I first saw Mary Roscoe’s work in 2009 when she entered and won the EAC Art Awards c ompetition. I was impressed then. Now I’m inspired to try something similar. It’s so expressive and wonderful.

    • Diana Hudson says:

      Model from behind ( After Seurat) by Mary Roscoe is utterly astounding. Pointilism is difficult enough in paint never mind in thread. The lost and found edges are just stunning; the way her face blends into the background leaving the viewer’s brain to fill in he rest is a master stroke. I know this comment is years after the exhibition but I would love to know if this one is for sale.
