Calling all stitchers!
Heart of The Stitch
Daventry & Rugby Area Embroidery Group
Launch of Summer Programme
The Summer programme is based on a series of inspirational monthly projects. These are innovative, experimental and will appeal to all who love to stitch. ‘Gathering Knots in May’ is a demonstration of manipulation and embellishing material, ‘Create a Collage’, is a kit that combines paper, paint, stitch and recycled materials, ‘Wish you were here’ – create a postcard using any materials and stitch and ‘Only a Rose’ is a novel printing technique.
Well known artists from around the UK have devised and contributed to these designs suitable for both beginners and experienced stitchers of all ages. Materials, kits and full instructions are presented to members at monthly meetings. These feature workshops, demonstrations and speakers which have resumed at great local venues.
The friendly Heart of the Stitch group exhibit locally. Embroiderers from Daventry, Rugby and surrounding areas are welcome to share with us a modern approach to innovative, experimental, traditional stitching and textile art techniques.
