Current Programme 2020

Although we can't meet up in the flesh during this period we have risen to the challenge to support our members and to continue stitching activities. 

Branch meetings 
Our Branch Meetings are currently taking place  on the second Saturday of the month, by Zoom.  If you want to join or visit please email Eve 
14 November 

PAM KEELING will be running a Zoom Stitch Workshop.

Instructions and materials will be sent at a later date. (Pam says that you will have all you will

need to join this workshop without needing to go shopping!)

12 December. 

RUTH SINGER will be giving a Zoom talk on “Hidden Histories”

This talk will delve into the background to Ruth’s professional practice and explore her

work over the last 5 years including a number of solo exhibitions. Ruth will share the stories behind projects, artist residencies, museum research, personal and emotional experiences which shape the work she creates.

Ruth Singer is an artist-maker with a background working in the museum sector. She is fascinated

by material culture, history and the power of objects in human lives. Her work aims to explore and

illuminate human experience, our understanding of heritage and the traces and stories we leave

behind. Her work has a distinctive feel of preciousness and delicacy of touch created by the

combination of hand stitch, fragile fabrics and emotive subject matter. She produces exhibitions,

community projects and books and works as a consultant and mentor.

For information on Ruth and images of her work please go to:

The meeting starts at 10.45 and we will be working on projects together whilst we chat.  Currently we are working on circles to form a "link" in our branch chain.  (See instructions below).  We are looking at other projects to do especially with Christmas in mind.  If you have any suggestions please contact Eve (See above).
