We aim to promote embroidery and related crafts to everyone and as a group we collect, preserve, document, interpret and make embroidery accessible to all, through exhibiting, showing examples and being visible in our community.
Our 5 attributes – suggested by our members
1. We are a friendly and caring group and our meetings have a relaxed atmosphere.
2. We have fun and are given the opportunity to experiment and learn at morning workshops.
3. We reach out and share with our local community and beyond.
4. Our members pass on skills by encouraging others and sharing expertise.
5. We are always learning something new from each other and expert speakers.
We are a friendly bunch who meet regularly on the first Saturday of every month (not August) at Elm Ridge Methodist Church Hall. The meeting proper is from 2.00 pm. We suggest that you get there a little sooner so that you can sign in, have a cup of tea and and meet other members.
