All bagged up!

Ignominiously packed, ready for transporting to Broughton Castle.
After months of hard work, our exquisite cushions - created in celebration of the 'Capability Brown'  project - have made there way to Broughton Castle where members Ann Lowe, Gill Manthorpe, Julia Swift and Em Coventry have distributed them so they are seen to best advantage all around the castle. Take a look on our BDEG website - they look so beautiful.

The castle is well worth a visit - but
during May and June, follow the
cushion trail.
Details of the actual exhibition are on the Broughton Castle website - 1st May to 3rd July. You'll need to check the days on which the castle is open.

Ann L in full swing with
her cushion project.
It seemed sad to see them go, bundled into bin bags (!) after having watched their conception and creation during our regular Sewing Days, which have now become a part of our Banbury & District branch calendar. The next two opportunities are on Friday 27th May and Friday 24th June, 10.00-2.00 (bring a packed lunch). They offer a really relaxing few hours when one can stitch and chat without pressure; ideal to get to know one another, or greet visitors - even members from other groups or branches. 

A folder of inspiration, divided
into many sections - for those new to
stitching, or more advanced
and seeking inspiration.
We meet at St.Mary's Church Hall, Wykham Lane, Broughton, OX15 5DT - (just off the Banbury Road). There's no need to book - just come along with something to create. It may be that you have discovered this Blog through a Facebook link and would like to participate; just arrive - you will be more than welcome. We also have a collection of folders with stitching prompts if you have not stitched for a while, or need some inspiration. Not just embroidery, but mixed-media textiles art using a range of techniques and materials.
