Sew & So with Kickstart

Following the success of our extra meetings for Kickstart we have introduced “Sew and So” as a meeting for stitching.

These are extra meetings of two hours, held every month, and open to all members. Kickstart participants may continue to use these get-togethers to support each other and share ideas leading up to the exhibition next year.  For those not involved with Kickstart, we are working towards our Branch exhibition in 2018to showcase our talents!

“Sew and So” meetings are a chance to meet other members, stitch, enjoy mini-workshops, chat and socialise.  There will be a small charge of £3 per session Bring your own refreshments for the Thursday meetings


Kickstart is the Educational Programme run by the East Midlands Region of the Embroiderers' Guild.

It isn't a competition and is open to all members (and you don’t have to be a skilled embroiderer!) To take part you will need to purchase the Kickstart workbook and participate in at least one of the Development Days.
