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. Please see contact numbers below.

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 Saturday 7th July at 9.30 a.m when we will be meeting at The Ruby Hunt Centre for our Summer Lunch.  Remember to wear your garden party hat and best summer frock!  We will be making a pin cushion in a vintage tea cup and saucer.  A kit to include cup, saucer and basic materials will be provided but remember to bring any beads, lace, ribbons etc for extra decoration and also usual sewing kit.

The following Monday 9th July we will be visiting Gunby Hall to take photographs, sketch, generally familiarise ourselves ready for our future project.  Contact Janet or any other committee member if have not already organised a lift there.

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.
