Aspects of Stitch

Market Harborough

The group formerly known as Market Harborough Embroiderers' Guild will be re-formed under the name of Aspects of Stitch. The group is affiliated to, but no longer a part of, the Embroiderers' Guild.

During the most recent stage of lockdown members have been enjoying Zoom meetings instead of actual get-togethers. Our travelling books have still been travelling, but virtually instead of in reality.

We are striving to arrange a new meeting venue and will post news of that when we can. Our hope is to have an inaugural AGM in September with meetings going forward from that point, and a new committee decided upon.

We hope to remain a friendly and welcoming group who meet on a Thursday evening to listen to talks and take part in workshops.

You won't need to be good at embroidery to join in - anyone who is interested in decorative stitch will be more than welcome to come along.

Meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of most months - except august and December.

Changes

“78 Derngate” Northampton NN1 1UH, an exhibition by all Threaded Together.


78 Derngate, Northampton is the only house in England with interiors designed by Charles Rennie Macintosh. It is an amazing mixture of Art Deco pattern and colour. It is a house well worth a visit.

all Threaded Together’ had arranged to stage its Changes exhibition in the gallery at Number 78 in May 2020. Obviously, the show did not take place. Covid has meant a two year wait to show the work and we are lucky that the gallery has kept a slot for us this year.


‘all Threaded Together’ is a group of artists who practise a diverse range of textile art. The members’ interests are varied and individual, their styles unique. A variety of textile skills can be seen: hand and machine embroidery, fabric dyeing, printing and painting, digital imagery, quilting techniques and shibori, producing work in both two and three dimensions. Inspiration can come from nature, urban and environment habitats, poetry, diverse cultures and historical costume. Each member explores individual themes and interests, as well as group themes that have a more structured brief. For this, their fourth major exhibition, there are two themes; each person has produced a piece of work inspired by the Charles Rennie Mackintosh house where the exhibition is held as well as work on the theme ‘change’.
