Stitch­ers go to mar­ket to pub­li­cise their craft group

Macclesfield Express - - BOSLEY TRAGEDY -

SKILL­FUL em­broi­der­ers demon­strated their craft as part of Na­tional Stitch Day.

The mem­bers of the Mac­cles­field and Dis­trict branch of the Em­broi­ders’ Guild were at the Trea­cle Mar­ket, where they showed off a va­ri­ety of their work.

The dis­play also in­cluded work by pri­mary school pupils at Ket­tleshulme St James Pri­mary School, who have worked with the guild to cre­ate their own work of art.

Hi­lary Fish, joint chair of the 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 called a ‘Guild’ it is stuffy and ex­clu­sive, but noth­ing could be fur­ther from the truth”.

The lo­cal branch meets be­tween 1.30pm and 3.30pm, on the third Thurs­day of each month, at St John’s Church Hall on Wil­wick Lane.

There are no meet­ings in July and Au­gust.

The branch also holds skills shar­ing ses­sions and or­gan­ises day schools and out­ings.
