Our programme includes many highly regarded speakers - textiles artists, lecturers, authors,
curators, and seasoned travellers with a passion for stitching. We hear about their lives
and work, their current projects, the techniques and processes they use, and what inspires
them. Often they bring artwork or books for us to see, touch and discuss after their talk.
Throughout the year, several workshops are organised by a mixture of members and visiting
specialists. These days are a great opportunity to learn new skills and enjoy creative time
Our Stitching Groups
We currently have two stitching groups. The aim is for small groups of members to meet
regularly in each other's homes to share skills and ideas, and get to know each another
while doing some stitching.
Group outings to the annual Knitting and Stitching Show, and other textile exhibitions are
planned by CETG each year.
At every meeting, volunteers set up our library of books and DVDs. This is a fantastic
resource for all CETG members.
