Next Meeting: Saturday 5 May, 10.30am to 3pm...

The Young Embroiderers section of the Embroiderer's Guild encourages and supports young people between the ages of 5-18 who want to enjoy being creative with fabric, threads and stitches.

Young people of all levels of ability are welcome and caters for those making their first stitches right up to students wanting to base their careers on this area of art and design.

Making Dorset Posies

Sarah Henderson says: "We loved the Dorset Posies and dream catchers the Young Embroiderers made and how they translated the stitches and ideas into their own designs. This was our first session in the new venue at Wharton Park. The natural light flooding into the room was fantastic and we can’t wait for future sessions. We welcomed three visitors following our press release in the Durham Advertiser and we hope they will return to our next session in September".
