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.
We were delighted that Cas Holmes was able to join us, via zoom (our first time!) and give us an interesting insite into her world of emboidery. Paint and stitch are combined with discarded cloth, paper and found materials to create unique layered surfaces. The rituals of drawing and making mark the passing of time. The history and familiarity of the worn cotton, linen and paper surfaces inform the narratives contained within her work.
The February meeting was very well attended. and the new project, Slow Stitch, was proving to be a success.
See below the results from the January prompts: square on square, buttons and straight stitch.
All the information needed to start off is on the Activities page.
There were ideas left from the book project, some are
incorporated into the new project, the remaining ideas have been allocated one to each month in 2024.
For those wishing to continue with the book project in 2024, a list of the remaining topics is available
from Wendy, e mail a request if needed. January's topic was Eagles, see below the amazing work that was on display at the meeting. February's topic is 'Connections'. February prompt is: Hexes and English Paper piercing.
The last topic f0r the book project in 2023 was Fish, see a photo below.
