On Tuesday a group of stitchers from the Suffolk West branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild journeyed to Braintree to be conducted around the Power of Stitch exhibition by myself and Melinda.
Before the tour began Melinda described a little about how the group worked, how we present our work to each other and the support we gain from Anthea, our mentor.
We then gave everyone time to wander around the exhibition and ask specific questions about the work on display.
We were also able to open the cabinet and remove our sketch/ideas books for everyone to peruse, although sometimes it was difficult to remember exactly how we’d achieved a design and the thought process behind it.
After all the hard work completing our exhibits and preparing them for display it was a real reward to share the Power of Stitch exhibition with such an admiring audience.
