Boston

We are a well established Branch BUT we have embroiderers working at all different levels so please don't feel intimidated!  We welcome all.  We are always looking for new members so please come along and see who we are and what we do - we would make you most welcome.  You can find a little more about the group activities and interests from our Facebook and Pinterest pages - The Boston Stitchers.

Please see contact numbers below if you would like any more information.

We meet in The Len Medlock Centre, St George's Road, Boston PE21 8YB on the 4th Friday of each month at 9.30 a.m. until 12.30.
In spring and autumn we hold 2 day workshops at the Ruby Hunt Centre in Donington.

Next meeting
Our next monthly meeting will be on Friday 28th February 2020 when Jean Shaftoe from the Joseph Banks  Society will be coming to speak about Joseph Banks, his life and work.  Remember to bring Stitch Books if you have them, Library Books and pocket money for the Sales Table.  The list for the two day course (28th and 29th March) with Shelley Rhodes will be there to sign if you haven’t already done so and wish to attend.

Donington Flower Festival organisers asked if we would like to have a corner in the church to display some embroideries.  Since it was festival number 50 we thought that it would be appropriate to display some gold work pieces.
