Embroiders’ Guild

Friends of Fotheringhay Church Embroiders’ Guild

The new FFC Embroidery Guild has now held two meetings in Fotheringhay village hall to set the way ahead for the group activities. The inaugural meeting was held on 23rd July with a follow up working meeting on 30th July.

We were most fortunate to have two excellent mentors for the group activities:

  1. Christine Marsters, a past Chairman of the Peterborough Embroiderers’ Guild and a textile technology teacher
  2. Elaine Harburn, the current Chairman of the Peterborough Embroiderers’ Guild.

Their guidance has proved invaluable in setting the tone and direction for the work of the group. Fortunately they have very kindly agreed to continue in this mentor and advisory role provided that the group assumes the challenge of organising itself and its activities.

Those who attended the working meeting on 30th July were:


  1. Annette Beeton
  2. Mary Wheeldon
  3. Pat Wheeldon
  4. Mary Boyall
  5. Christine Halsall
  6. Jill Stewart
  7. Sandra Cochrane
  8. Penny Tebbs
  9. Victoria Leatham
  10. Anne Hindle
  11. Charlotte Williams

The idea is that the group will meet formally once each month or so to maintain the continuity of their work but that the bulk of the work will be carried out at home in their own time.

The next meeting will be at 2:00pm on Monday 10th September in Fotheringhay village hall.

Anyone interested in joining this group should please just come along on the day or contact the secretary of the FFC committee at hughs007@gmail.com
