Chainstitch: Regional Magazine

Unfortunately, Jane Lockley, the person who normally edits and collates the regional Chainstitch magazine is not able to produce this year's issue this summer as she has to have an operation. If any members feel that they would like to help with producing the magazine, please could they contact birminghamembroiderersguild@gmail.com, and I will put you in touch with Rosemary Green, the Regional Chair.

Thank you.

Free Machine Embroidery With Crazy Mary

This Monday, we had a fabulous branch meeting. We welcomed Crazy Mary to share her beautiful machine embroidery with us.


Mary works as a primary school teacher, and shared some beautiful quilts that she had made in various classes. These have been entered into the competitions at the NEC Festival Of Quilts, and have won prizes.

Mary will be leading a dayschool with us on September, and she kindly demonstrated some techniques she will be sharing with us to make these beautiful free machined pictures:



Mary also runs other workshops in the local area, including these lovely embellished books:


...and gorgeous quilted pictures:


We're all really looking forward to welcoming Mary back in September; if you would like to book a place on her dayschool, please either see Margaret at a session, or email birminghamembroiderersguild@gmail.com.
