  13. Freda Eyden says:

    I have about 20 teddies ready for posting, but my usual contact is no longer collecting them. Would you be able to suggest a new contact, e.g. yourselves? I live in South Manchester but am willing to post the teddies anywhere in the UK if necessary. It seems such a shame to have them here when they could be comforting a child somewhere!

    I did try the Teddies for Tragedies website as many people suggested on Google, but they closed the site down a couple of years ago due to a possible virus and don’t seem to have re-established it yet.

    Your help and advice would be most appreciated. Many thanks!

    Best wishes,
    Freda Eyden

And don’t forget that we also have our 60 Glorious Years exhibition in Liverpool Anglican Cathedral from 28th May to 3rd June- that will be well worth a visit,

  22. olive halsall says:

    Yet another wonderful workshop day was enjoyed by all those who attended the Golden Hinde or Nue Gold work embroidery class .We were very fortunate to have two such skilled tutors ,Sarah and her mum .
    The class was well attended and we were a rowdy bunch to begin with but once Sarah started to demonstrate her technique on how to achieve the work she and her mum had produced, a hush fell upon the room, we were all intriged .
    They had on display a wide variety of their work and ideas of how to embelish using Jap Gold .
    They gave everyone encouragement useful tips and plenty of patience .
    At the end of the session we were all able to achieve and produce our own peice of couched gold thread embroidery .Thank you again Sarah and Mum

  23. olive halsall says:

    To all organisers of the March 19th meeting

    It was a brilliant day .
    My thanks to the commitee and everyone concerned with the event .

    Thanks again

  24. Christine Lelliott says:

    I have some teddies looking for a good home, can I post them to someone? I live in West Yorkshire just in case you have a contact otherwise I will post them to someone. I have been unable to get any response from the website and have had these ready for a year or more.

    I spoke to Vicky Williams by phone a few weeks ago to ask about coming along to your next meeting on 20th June and she kindly sent me some information through the post… I know the workshop is on ‘Machine embroidery Techniques’ so I’m just checking that it’s still ok for me to come along and pay on the day? I am an interested beginner hoping to learn embroidery and other skills. Many thanks Anne.

  26. Gwyneth Jackman says:

    I attended your talk given to Montague Patchers, Sale and enjoyed it very much, so much in fact that I have recommended you to come and talk to another group to which I belong. It is Timperley’s group of the NWR (National Women’s Register), we are a group of lively minded women from 55 upwards. There are between 15-20 of us and meeting are in held in our homes. Many of the group are socially minded and The Sreepur Village story would be of interest to them. Please can you provide me with dates of when you are available any time between May 2015 to April 2016 and also information on your costs of giving a talk. Looking forward to hearing from you

    Hi ruby i am emailing as I haven’t got your telephone number. I’m letting you know that we are having a craft fair at St Marys grassendale on March 14 th from 11am and wondered if you would like a stall. I see you are at St Barnabus that day but wondered if maybe you would be able to do another stall at St marys anyway. Everyone loves your stall so i hope you would be able to join us somehow ! Best wishes Alison Rive

  29. Jacqui Davidson says:

    I am contacting to hopefully find C & G courses in the Merseyside area.
    I would prefer L3 in Embroidery.
    I do not seem to be able to find a college that offers above course.
    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
    Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
    Kind regards,

    • Hilary says:

      Hello Jacqui,
      Unfortunately we are not aware of any C&G Embroidery courses in the Liverpool area. Perhaps you could consider Distance Learning courses, there is plenty of info to be found on the web about this. Why not come along to a meeting of Merseyside Embroiderers Guild and see what we have to offer,
      Best wishes,

  35. Neil says:

    Hi there,

    I’ve noticed your review of Jane’s new book The Art of Embroidered Butterflies describes her technique as machine embroidery I felt that I ought to point out that she actually works by hand.

    Many thanks

  36. Vicky says:

    I’ve just viewed your exhibition at Voirrey’s. Well done all! Lovely to see the various pieces. Large ones do you all proud.

    Just checked this out. Nice work and you’re really efficient in getting those pictures up fast from the flannels we did today 🙂
    Love how Orla’s in a ton of the pictures of the merseyside group.


  39. Vicky says:

    Lovely to be reminded of 2008 and all the work that went into that event making the day so special for Merseyside. Thanks for putting up the report.

  40. Vicky says:

    I’ve just read the latest account of Ruby’s charity; wonderful to hear about. The ladies in Bangledash fulfilled a special order for me this Christmas, a waistcoat embroidered with large and small hippos. These animals are a favourite of my daughter’s but the ladies had no knowledge of such beasts. Ruby took a drawing I found when she went out last October and the waistcoat was here well in time for present giving. My daughter loved it and was very touched by the care taken with the work. Thank you Ruby and all your ladies.

  41. Vicky says:

    Price for Goldwork varies depending on supplier. The moral is shop around!

  42. Vicky says:

    The YE piece looks very exciting, so many different methods and media. Can’t wait to see the finished picture. Will there be monsters?

  43. Vicky says:

    Great to see the link to Empress Mills. More of a similar nature please. So much easier to shop until my finger drops!

  44. Karen Scott says:
