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

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 September 2023 meeting was our AGM, the usual reports were given. Our long standing

suggestions has been greatly apprecisted over those years, by all the Chairs and the committee.
Our new secreatry is Wendy Clark, contact details remain the same.
The members choice competition for the AGM was Landscape, all the entries can be seen below.
Our book project topic chosen for October is Ecology, another great idea with plenty of
scope for interpretation, we look forward to seeing them next month.
