Branches‎ > ‎


Leicestershire Branch has now been in existence for 50 years (which was commemorated in November 2018) and was the first Branch to be set up in Leicestershire and Rutland. 

We are a friendly group of ladies who share a common interest in textiles which include hand embroidery, machine embroidery, papermaking, feltmaking and textiles from other countries. We have an extensive library and sales tables for members’ use.
