The Big Stitch

Six members of our Venture group (The Running Stitchers) had an outing on Saturday to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford for The Big Stitch.  We all caught the train at various stations and managed to locate each other so that we could sit and chat on the way there.  It was a very enjoyable day out and was well organised.

Several stitchers were demonstrating at various locations throughout the museum and there was something for everyone to see.  The exhibition 'Threads of Silk and Gold' was outstanding.

These two banners were displayed by the Oxford branch of the Embroiderers' Guild and we also took on board a 'Travelling Sketchbook' challenge that one of the branches had been participating in ... it may be something we will start in the New Year so watch this space for further details.
