This group meets fortnightly at the Rovers Athletic Club. There is no restriction on numbers, level of ability or interests. It is a self-help group where people come with their own projects and stitch, knit or crochet etc. in a friendly atmosphere. Advice and ideas for projects are offered if requested and everyone's input is welcomed.
At the moment, we have a group of around 12 people who come along on a regular basis. Their projects range from traditional stitching, through layered fabric landscapes to more experimental embroidery. A basic sewing kit is essential, but people seem happy to share threads and other equipment whilst individuals relatively new to modern embroidery techniques build up their own stash.
It has been suggested that we might offer the opportunity to attend off-island workshops and exhibitions in the future.
