Open Day May 2011

The Young Embroiderers ran a flower making workshop

We held an Open Day on the 21st May for the first time this year and we wanted to make this event different from our bi annual exhibition, which will be held next year. The emphasis for this event was on demonstrations and workshops all run by members . The event was designed to publicise our group and raise awareness for textiles and embroidery, and perhaps recruit some more members. We decided that all the profits from the event would go to a local charity, and the boiler fund at Chelford Village Hall was chosen as a worthy cause.

May Meeting Jane Clowes

Jane Clowes treated us to a really interesting talk about her work and influences. She was lucky enough to be chosen to go to Japan for 3 months on an art residency and she shared her experience with us through her slides.
