This touring exhibition is now showing at Ashton-under-Lyne Central Gallery until 1 July 2017. The theme of the exhibition is wartime and embroidery and it illustrates the role of needlework as a calming influence in troubled times.
The exhibition covers both World Wars with small embroideries from the Guild's collection such as postcards stitched with silk, and handkerchiefs as well as pincushions worked by disabled servicemen.
The Gallery is open from 10am -12 noon and 1pm - 4pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, and 10am -1pm on Saturday.
Representatives of Glossop branch will be at the Gallery this Saturday, 29 April, running several stitching activities, and would love to see you there.
