Ledbury & District

Needlework

Meetings are on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month in Leadon Bank Restaurant, from 2.00pm to 4.00pm.

At most meetings, our members bring their own projects, sharing advice and suggestions, and as on ongoing feature from time to time members lead workshops in needlework techniques, most recently on Patchwork and on Crochet. Always up for a challenge, members enjoy mastering new techniques and creating a splendid array of clothing, decorative and household items.

Our Easter display, which we donated to Leadon Bank, was well-received and we all enjoyed contributing to the project. At the end of May some of us visited the Worcester Embroiderers' Guild Exhibition at Croome. The work celebrated the landscape of Croome and most of it was amazingly intricate, and some of it rather endearingly quirky, but there were several ideas which we would be able to copy and adapt for ourselves.

Also at the end of May, we visited Gloucester Docks to meet the Canal Craft ladies. They showed us some rag rug techniques, and various spider stitches they used to decorate items of clothing. They were so enthusiastic and informative, and for both men and women we can heartily recommend their impending talk to U3A members.

For the next couple of months we're concentrating on our entries for the handicraft section of the Horticultural Show on 26th August.

In order to spread our work, we use all of the space available and so have to consider the Group at capacity at the moment.
