Heart of the Stitch, Daventry, Rugby and District Embroiderers Guild meetings have been cancelled until further notice.

Anybody interested in needlecraft and textiles can join - you do not need to be an expert or even be able to stitch! Our monthly meetings include interesting speakers on textile - related topics, along with the chance to 'sit and sew', sometimes with a theme.
The District covers Daventry, Rugby and surrounding villages.

We meet on the 3rd Wednesday in the month  
7.00pm - 9.00pm at: Daventry Methodist Church, 
6 Golding Close, Daventry, NN11 4FB
Members free, visitors £5 (all welcome)

We are a lovely, friendly branch who welcome new members and enjoy exchanging thoughts, ideas and opinions. We welcome suggestions for mini workshops from our members if they wish too, whole day workshops and speakers.

Please feel free to visit us for the evening or contact us for more information. We'd love to see you, ply you with tea or coffee, and share our love of textile-related topics.
