Welcome to the Windsor & Maidenhead Branch of the Embroiderers' GuIld

Next Meeting 13th March 2018

 

Our speaker Linda Onions - Know your Onions

 

Textile Artist and Teacher

 

The act of marking fabric with stitch is very important to Linda as she feels the marks made on to fabric with thread leave a very lasting impression. She believes the act of repetitive stitching has a therapeutic effect; it can help calm the mind and allow a person to focus.Her recent work has been based on childhood memories, fairy tales and nursery rhymes and the reasons behind why she finds fabric and stitch so precious, she believes that fabric can evoke memories and give us comfort, physically and metaphorically.

The process of creating a piece is as important to Linda as the end product, she finds the journey as rewarding as reaching the final destination.

About us 

We are a branch of the Embroiderers' Guild and as such are committed to education about all aspects of the history and practise of embroidery and textile arts.

 

Are you interested in embroidery or any aspect of textiles? Just want to find out more about what we do?  Why not join us at one of our friendly evening meetings, usually held on the second Tuesday of the month (except August) at 7:30pm

at:-

 

The Soltau Centre,

(Behind the Church of St. James-the-Less),

Henley Road,

Stubbings,

Maidenhead,

Berkshire SL6 6QW

 

You don't need special skills or even to be an active stitcher. With us you will find plenty of inspiration and people to teach you.

 

We normally have a speaker who brings a presentation and examples of their work or pieces from their collection. Alternatively we organise a mini-workshop evening for those attending to try new materials and techniques and these are sometimes combined with social evenings.  See our programme page for more details of what is planned for your intended visit. 

 

In addition, membership brings the opportunity to join our other activities such as Saturday Schools, Visits, Design Days, Exhibitions and Group Projects.

 

 

We are a Branch Member of the Embroiderers' Guild
