Doors are open at 7.00pm for a start time of 7.30 pm. Tea and coffee is available before the meeting.This is a great time to have a chat with like minded people.
Borderville Sports Centre
We have a varied programme with speakers, member led workshops and day workshops.
Members pay £3 per meeting. This can be a single payment of £27 in September each year, when there is a discount available. Visitors pay £4 per meeting
Each year we hold 3 or 4 full day workshops at Easton-On-The-Hill village hall. Most workshops have a visiting tutor and are very enjoyable events where we can learn a new technique or deepen our knowledge of embroidery. Details are in programme notes below.
The theme was 'Sketch Books' Now these are words along with 'design' that strike fear in the heart of many an embroiderer. However, this workshop was well attended and proved to be very productive. Here is some of the work produced at the workshop.
Thursday 4th May at 7 - pm

Rutland & Stamford Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild
Rutland & Stamford Branch took part in the Kaleidoscope! Celebration of colour through Quilts, Embroidery and Flowers at St Peters Church, Empingham, Rutland on 20th and 21st August 2016.
The branch exhibited a range of work through a kaleidoscope of styles and techniques. We had a very successful weekend talking to many visitors and selling a good number of exhibits. The sales table was also a great draw
The focus for Rutland & Stamford branch for the next year will be our upcoming exhibition in 2018 in the gallery at Stamford Arts Centre. We have explored our theme and many members are planning or embarking on work for exhibition.
Experience at recent exhibitions has shown, that many visitors to textile art exhibitions have little appreciation of the techniques and materials involved. Their appreciation of what they are viewing is greatly enhanced if they do have some understanding. So we hope to use Habitat as a 'mission to explain'. We are asking members to photograph the creative process and to illustrate and explain techniques and materials used. This will all be included in the exhibition.
