September Meeting 2017

Alsager Creative Stitchers meet at Alsager Library,Alsager on the 1st Tuesday of the month. We meet at 1-45 pm for 2-00 pm.

The group runs as a cooperative and we like to involve as many members in the running of the group as possible. It started with about 12 members and now has 29 members. We welcome new members. Visitors can try us out for a few sessions before joining.

We try to have a varied programme so that there is something for everyone. We have speakers who bring along their work for us to look at. We also have hands- on sessions.

We also also have outings and informal get togethers.

You do not need to be an expert in embroidery but just have a keen interest in stitching .

Embroidery exhibition 

I stumbled upon this exhibition in a side room at the Foxlowe Gallery, Leek. 

The postcards will be familiar to everyone as we have embroidered them in the past. 

It is an Embroiderers Guild Exhibition.
