A beautiful example of stump work.

An independent stich group in Newcastle where embroidery and textile art is for all.

Newcastle Embroidery and Textile Art is a new group, (previously

Newcastle upon Tyne Embroiderers’ Guild), and is now an independent stitch group. 

Our aims remain the same, our meeting day remains the same and our venue remains the same,

see the About page for those details.

Our May 2023 meeting had the fourth display of the Creative Book Project. 

Our topic chosen in April was Walt Disney Characters, the amazing results can

be seen below, Photos from pluto to tinkerbell. All the designs are new work, and

included explanations/research, varied stitches, varied colours and lots of imagination. 

Also below (last photo) are the pieces in progress from this months workshop with Kay Allan.

We hope to see the finished pieces next month.

The speaker this month was Lesley Wood, photos from Lesley to last but one, show some of

the lovley work she brought along.

A part quote from a member, 'todays speaker provided another inspirational talk.

She was so enthusiastic it was infectious and I shall now be hunting vintage cloth', thanks Elaine.

The next topic, for June, was chosen at random, Leaves, the topic was

discussed with many interpretations being put forward.

This project has quickly become a firm favourite with the group: each month we look

forward to seeing the varied interpretations of the chosen topic. 

The competition in January was a box lid no more than 5" square.

The variety of techniques were used, some members went further than just the lid,

decorating the sides, and even the insides, lids and bases. An amazing display. 


The next two competitions details can be found on the Activites page.

All the latest from ANSG can be found on the News and Updates page.

We are delighted to add a Facebook page for our group
