Textile Tearooms

Had a great meeting of the Great Western Embroiderers yesterday. We have been working with Natural England to create pieces of work for the tearooms in Cricklade to show what a wonderful resource the North Meadow can be for the community.

The work will be on show this weekend in the tearooms and for the next 2 weekends as well. Here is a photo of one of the banners of work.. there are 4 more. If you would like to know more about the North Meadow and the fritillaries click here The fritillaries are just blooming now.. so are a wonderful sight . Do take your camera if you decide to visit. If you manage to go this weekend, then please drop into the tearooms for a cup of tea and a slice of cake and of course enjoy our pieces of stitched work.

Just to catch up, went along to the West Country Embroiderers Dorset Day last week... most enjoyable and a good talk in the afternoon about Palestinian textiles. ( Photo above is of Salisbury)

I have been working on a new piece of work, and thoroughly enjoying myself. Here is just a snippet.
