Thread­ing to­gether sup­port for craft guild

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE RAMBLERS -

EM­BROI­DER­ERS’ Guild mem­bers aim to reap what they ‘sew’ by de­mon­strat­ing their skills to po­ten­tial new mem­bers ahead of Na­tional Stitch Day.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion’s Mac­cles­field and Dis­trict branch will show visi­tors to Trea­cle Mar­ket em­broi­dery in ac­tion as well as com­pleted pieces by Ket­tleshulme St James Pri­mary School pupils at St Michael’s Church on Sun­day, July 26.

Hi­lary Fish, joint chair­woman of the EG Mac­cles­field and Dis­trict branch, said: “Na­tional Stitch Day was in­tro­duced as a way to make peo­ple more aware of the wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties of­fered by the Em­broi­der­ers’ Guild, which has branches through­out the UK.

“You may think that be­cause it is a ‘guild’ it is stuffy and ex­clu­sive, but noth­ing could be fur­ther from the truth”.

She added that any­one with an in­ter­est in fab­rics, colour, threads and stitch was welcome, from be­gin­ners to City and Guilds qual­i­fied em­broi­der­ers.

The group meets from 1.30pm to 3.30pm at St John’s Church Hall on Wil­wick Lane on the third Thurs­day of each month ex­cept in July and Au­gust.

Na­tional Stitch Day is on Au­gust 1.
