Anyone aged 8 and upwards is welcome at meetings, held about every five weeks on Saturdays from 10am to 3pm at 7th Reigate Scouts' Hall, Timperley Gardens, Redhill. If you are younger than 8 you are welcome to attend, but must be accompanied by an adult.
Not only do the group learn to embroider, but they also experiment with all sorts of exciting techniques - batik, silk painting, dyeing, making silk paper, felt, beading, using wires and buttons. The group try to complete an object each time they meet; which might be a book cover, bracelet, quirky creature, picture, cushion etc.
Costs: an annual subscription to the Embroiderers' Guild (due each September) is £7 and includes a magazine called Textile Ideas, plus £3 per day to cover the cost of materials and hiring the hall.
Group Organiser: MrsThelma Cooper, Ross, High Street, Limpsfield, RH8ODR
