The Guild offers a diverse program that changes each year. Generally, there are workshops, mini lessons and/or speakers on topics and/or techniques designed to enable our members to broaden their knowledge and expertise.
Meeting and Programme Calendar 2022-2023
Programme – House and Garden – The programme theme this year is House and Garden. There will be one project (any size, any technique) involving a longer time period which allows for a variety of techniques. These techniques are covered in several one-day learning opportunities which include stitching flowers, ribbon work, crewel, blackwork and architectural embroidery. It also allows for interesting background techniques such as collage and printing.
At our November 16 Guild meeting architectural embroidery was explored with a review of the straight stitch/stem stitch for outlining buildings. Members could work on a small hands-on Blackwork sampler. For more information, samples and completed Blackwork samplers please see here: Blackwork Sampler Project
