Workshop – May 2013

Our meeting in May was spent with a morning session working on our top secret Tie Quilt Project….all will be revealed soon!  So watch this space.

The speaker in the afternoon was the wonderful Lizzie Wall who talked us through her journey into art quilts.  You can find more about Lizzie at her personal website here.   As she did so she passed around her gorgeous pieces, collage fabrics, machine quilted and hand embellished. An appreciative audience of Stitchers went from appreciative oohs and aahs to a stunned silence on taking a closer look at the extraordinarily beautiful church robes and vestments which Lizzie does to commission.

All her work is inspired by her love of the natural world, and this shines through her work which many of us found both moving and inspirational.

If you would like to be inspired and learn more about what the megastitchers do at The Manchester Branch of The Embroiderers’ Guild, why don’t you join us and see what we’re all about?

Thanks for visiting.
