WBEG Monthly Meeting
Saturday 11th March 2.00pm - 4.00pm
Mary Sleigh - Embroidered African Textiles
My passion for materials and making by hand started as a child. I can still remember the excitement of going with my grandmother, an enthusiastic embroiderer, to choose threads and fabric in a needlework shop in Glasgow. It was an Aladdin’s cave of colour, textures and drawers full of crisp fabrics smelling of new linen. That was the start of my lifelong love of fabric and stitch; an absorbing journey that continues with many unexpected destinations.
at St Pauls Church Boundary Road, West Bridgford, NG2 7DB
