Barnstaple Embroidery Group

My embroidery group meets twice a month at the Roundwell Community Centre, Barnstaple [next to Sainsbury's].  All types of embroidery can be learnt here from surface embroidery to ribbon embroidery, stumpwork and goldwork.  I will also teach rag rugging at these sessions.


Students are working on different projects and group size is small with between 10-12 in each session.

My web site has details of dates and examples of 'work in progress' and completed works.
