The Launceston group of West Country Embroiderers recently held an exhibition and I'm delighted to be able to show you some photos of their lovely work. At present they only have 20 members so it was a real surprise to see so much sewing on display and such varied items!
This is one of Joan's beautiful cushions
and Moira's exquisite framed embroidery on silk.
Ruth's riotous garden in a hoop looked such fun to do. She must have used every single embroidery stitch known!
and she also made these delicate ribbon work flower twinchies.
Valerie had been very busy and made these two boxes - both lovely and practical,
and she sewed a set of 8 mandalas displayed in hoops. These 4 were my favourites.
This is Anne's sweet redwork snowman - I like the border she used, too.
and I loved this single colour relief embroidery, but I'm not sure who's nimble fingers created it.
There was so much more than the above to see and many beautiful stitchings beneath glass which I couldn't photograph sensibly.
Launceston embroiderers would love to welcome new members to their group. They meet at St Cuthbert Mayne Hall on the last Friday of every month from 10 am to 3 pm, when they share ideas, learn from each other or have a workshop with an expert tutor.
