Strawberry brooch

What a lovely relaxing day at our monthly meeting, which this month was a sit-and-stitch afternoon. Speakers are interesting and stimulating, but sometimes it’s also good to have time to catch up with people and stitch in company. Daphne kindly led a ‘Stitch Corner’ session, making strawberry brooches. Scroll down for some photos of the group working on their brooches, and at the end a finished one that was stitched by Michelle.

Ramster Embroidery Exhibition

This exhibition is coming up soon. It’s in Ramster Hall, a lovely 17th Century manor house in Surrey. The exhibition will be open from Friday March 1st until Sunday March 17th every day from 10 am until 5pm. The tea room will be open at the same time. There are two large halls of embroidery / textile art exhibits, with a wide variety of styles. I know of 6 SCS members who are taking part. It’s a good day out, and the cakes are good!
