May meeting - guest speakers from Merseyside

At our May meeting we were treated to three absorbing talks from members of Merseyside branch.  The speakers were Gill Roberts, Val Heron and Elsie Watkins.  Gill talked about her fabulous work as a corsetiere.  She is often commissioned to design and create bridal pieces:

One of Gill's other skills is in the creation of handbags for special occasions:

Finally, Gill displayed a beautiful quilt made by their members from fabric purchased at a Kaffe Fasset workshop:

We then heard a very interesting talk by Merseyside member Val Heron, who looks after a prize-winning group of Young Embroiderers.  She told us about all their achievements and we saw photographs of some of the work they have done.

Next, we listened to Elsie Watkins who is a skilled textile artist and who showed us many examples of her outstanding textile art:


Glossop members spent the rest of the meeting admiring the beautiful textiles.  We all send our thanks to Merseyside branch for travelling to Glossop and speaking as our guests.

  1. A very naturalistic depiction of embroidery artwork. This technique is effective at each end of the long. Image is putting the great influence. I prefer every type of outfits of this like Hand embroidered coats, shirts, trousers and many more outfits. So I think I can fulfill my requirements from this blog.
