Summer Party - 9th July 2012

The next meeting of the Birmingham Embroiderers Guild is a very special one, as it is our Summer Party. There'll be plenty going on:
  • Exhibition - If you've done any embroidery (whether complete or in progress) at or inspired by any of our workshops or dayschools with the Guild, please bring them so everyone can have a look. This includes any embroidery created for the 'Our Shared Industrial Heritage' project, whether you submitted it or not!
  • Competition - bring your embroidery on the theme of 'Animal, Vegetable or Mineral', and vote for the winning entry.
  • Strawberry cream teas - included in the standard entry price (£1.50 for members) will be a strawberry cream tea, with a tasty scone, jam, cream and strawberries, all served by the committee.
  • Chinese Raffle - There will be several raffle prizes on offer, including a bottle of wine and some embroidery related items - when you buy a raffle ticket, you'll get to select which prize you'd like to be in with a chance of winning.
  • Summer reading stall - bring one or two books to donate to the summer reading stall, which we'll be selling for a small amount towards guild funds.
As well as all of that, we will have Bailey Curtis speaking to us about her colourful life in textiles. She creates lovely landscapes in hand dyed felt, and will be bringing plenty of samples of her work to share with us.

The meeting will be at 7:00pm on Monday 9th of July, at our usual location of the Friends Meeting House, Watford Road, Cotteridge, B30 1JB. It is near Kings Norton train station, and on a number of bus routes, including the 11 and 18, and near the 45 and 47 buses from town. There is a free car park at the front of the building. If you are thinking of coming, it would be very helpful if you could RSVP by leaving a comment here, or by email to, so that we can work out how many strawberry cream teas to arrange. See you there!
