A bit about us

We are a friendly bunch of enthusiastic embroiderers from around the Solent area. We are from all walks of life, all ages and experiences from tentative beginners to professional embroiderers. Meetings are lively and the few workshops we have each year are always fun and well attended. We try to ensure the speakers we choose appeal to as many of our members as possible and our workshops cover many techniques both hand and machine embroidery.

Past workshops have included Faye Maxwell 'Crewel and Unusual', a new twist on an old (handworked) technique; Ruth Smith 'Chinese Folded Books', a fascinating insight in to Chinese embroidery and the construction of a Chinese embroidery thread container; Caroline Hyde Brown 'Celebrations of the Sea', a machine embroidered landscape; to name but a few.

Within these pages we hope to give new members and visitors an insight to our meetings and workshops.

We hope you enjoy looking around and look forward to welcoming you at one of our meetings.
