About our group: 

At the Southern Highlands Embroidery Group, we welcome new members at all times regardless of your level of ability. Our members, who have a vast range of skills and interest, share a long standing camaraderie, based on friendship and caring which provides a welcoming atmosphere for the newcomer.

Members will often start the meeting by having their lunch, sharing the months news. Members then start stitching and sharing their work and knowledge. We stop for a coffee break at 2.30pm when we might share some group information, discuss group business and future projects. We then alternate monthly with either a show and tell session based on a given theme; or Stitch of the month, where a member shares a stitch, providing notes and tuition to other members. We all have a stitch journal where we can keep our samples and notes.

Resources: 

We have a library and mentors to assist those wanting to extend their skills!

Activities: 

Before COVID we would arrange a number of in-house and external tutors to visit the group for workshops, we may re-visit this option once things are more predictable. We are currently working towards a small exhibition in 2022, and have more recently exhibited our works in a static display at the Wingecarribee Shire Council Chambers. We generally celebrate Christmas for our December meeting

What to bring: 

Your embroidery project, if you are working on one, threads, frame and sewing kit, lunch, mug for tea/coffee/water. Can bring something to share for afternoon tea if you wish.

Examples of work: 

During the past twelve months we have participated in rag paper making, and then embellishing it to make cards, Christmas stocking embellishments. hat band work, Christmas stocking with trapunto work, filet netting work and our own works.
