Geek Of The Week

I (Heather, Birmingham Guild blog maintainer) was on BBC 6 Music this weekend as 'Geek Of The Week'. I nominated myself for my embroidered picture of the exploding TARDIS from the end of the last series of Doctor Who:

Doctor Whoopla The Pandorica Opens (1)

I also had a chance to talk about our Postcards Project, where guilds across the country are stitching postcards to welcome sporting nations competing in the Olympics 2012, and the joy of making things.

If you want to listen to my little section, you can go to the listen again page until Saturday (the 16th of July) and skip forward to 48 minutes in.

Summer Party Today!

The Birmingham Embroiderers' Guild summer party is on today, with the afternoon session on from 1:30pm and the evening session starting at 7:30pm. It'll be a fab event, with strawberry cream teas, and a talk from the Lady Mayoress - if you've been wondering what the guild is all about, tonight would be a good chance to come down and meet people.
