                Branch Banner 

This was initiated when the branch was first formed, each member contributed by stitching a small panel and the Banner has been designed so that new pieces can be added to it over time as new members join us.

We are the Region's newest Branch and are officially called
 "Layers of Stitch" - EGG  (Embroiderers' Guild Grantham)

Updated every month. it is a good way of keeping in touch with LOS EGG, even if you cannot get to the meetings.

Have a look at the "Travelling Books" photos, they are an impressive record of the amount of varied work being produced by members.

Nicola Jarvis Presentation  and Workshop

On November 5th, we had the priviledge of having Nicola Jarvis come to visit us to give a fascinating presentation on embroidery of the late Tudor and Stuart period in which she discussed the fashionable past time of making small wooden caskets which were decorated all over with embroidery of flora, fauna and  insects. She also described  a very special  project she led at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford  where 20 of her students recreated C17th style caskets which were later exhibited at the same museum in May 2017.

The C17th style insect motifs she described earlier provided the starting point for the follow up mini workshop she led and  those of us who took part found the activity both rewarding and addictive!

Jess Grady Workshop  

 Floral Embroidery and Embellishments with
Mixed Media 

"members produced some truly beautiful 



Our local branch recently held a workshop where the very 

talented and creative Jess Grady showed several members

 how to incorporate unusual and recycled materials into their 

sewing, but also being able to add their own embroidery. 

Items included metal washers, elastic bands, plastic straws 

ironed flat to give a multi-coloured sheet for cutting out 

shapes, painted lace and foils, to be cut into leaf or petal 

shapes - the possibilities were endless. Everyone thoroughly 

enjoyed Jess's workshop and she was an excellent tutor.
