Ross on Wye & District

Crewel/Embroidery

For those who are unaware, Crewel embroidery is an ancient form of embroidery used as far back as the middle ages. The first recorded piece of work we can still see is the Bayeux Tapestry which, in fact, is not a tapestry but the most basic stitches used in crewel.

We have recently, October 2019,had two new members join the Group which takes numbers up to nine. The Group meets on Wednesdays afternoons at the co-ordinator's home in Ross.

For two and a half years we were working on wall hangings for Ross Town. Embroidery completed, the drapes were professionally finished by Essential Sewing Services in Ross and, in June 2018, were presented to Ross Town Council. They are now hanging in the Larruperz Community Centre and are illustrated here. Our next project is in progress and will also be a charitable venture.

Occasionally we take a break from stitching and take a trip out. On 4th September 2019 some members of the group visited the Nature in Art Gallery and Museum at Twigworth near Gloucester to see the Golden Threads of Life exhibition showing gold, silver and metal thread embroidery by members of the Goldwork Guild.

If you are interested in embroidery, whatever your skill level, and would like to join us, please do get in touch with Co-ordinator Gail.
