Heart of the Stitch - Autumn/Winter programme

Date: October 20th - December 8th

Heart of the Stitch embroidery group's winter/autumn programme is based on a series of inspirational monthly projects and ideas.

These are innovative, experimental and will appeal to all who love to stitch and appreciate mixed media art.

Members meet up at great local venues and each month materials, kits or instructions are presented by textile and embroidery artists.

Costs are minimal and often free of charge. The group extends a warm welcome.
