An independent stich group in Newcastle where embroidery and textile art is for all.
Newcastle Embroidery and Textile Art is now entering our third year, (previously
Newcastle upon Tyne Embroiderers’ Guild), and is 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.
The November meeting was short on attendees, (lucky ones away at Harrogate) but we had
a great afternoon, our speaker was Donna Cheshire, and many commented on the
interesting and informative talk she gave us. Art history, its development, how the artists
learned from each other and how she related it to her work.
See below, Donna with four examples of her work.
Our book project topic chosen for November was Tress, great work ladies, photos below.
The topic for December is 'A Sensory Delight', another great idea with plenty of
scope for interpretation,
The Chairmans Choice competition title, for the Januray meeting, is based
on the 'Seaside'. A piece of embroidery/textile no bigger than A4 (21 x 30 cms),
but can be any size in between.
All the latest from ANSG can be found on the News and Updates page.
We are delighted to add a Facebook page and Instagram page for our group

Whether you are a beginner or an expert in embroidery and textile art,
