AN embroidery exhibition at Drymen Library is showcasing work from members of the Strathendrick branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild – Britain’s biggest craft organisation.

The exhibition runs until 12 April during library hours and features examples of many different aspects of needlework from cross-stitch and canvas work to quilting  and metal thread work – and everything in between.

With nearly 50 members from the G63 area and beyond, the branch meets on the third Tuesday of the month (from September to April) at Killearn Parish Church and organises special classes, a December party as well as a regional meeting day in April and a social event in May.

Members can also learn more and develop their skills at a summer school held at Stirling University every August.

Embroiderers of all abilities – from absolute beginner to expert – are welcome to join the branch and a special young embroiderers section offers textile workshops and other opportunities for 7 to 17 year olds.

For more information email branch president Lyn Dunachie or call secretary Christina mcLachlan on 0141 563 8318. For more information about the young embroiderers’ section email Heatherwrightuk@aol.com or call 01360 550980.
