Embroiders’ Guild

Friends of Fotheringhay Church Embroidery Group

The new FFC Embroidery Group has now been meeting for nine months and grows from strength to strength.

Under the continued tutelage of our two mentors, Christine Marsters, a past Chairman of the Peterborough Embroiderers’ Guild and a textile technology teacher, and Elaine Harburn, the current Chairman of the Peterborough Embroiderers’ Guild, the group has produced some excellent work.

For Remembrance Day last year the group produced a collection of hearts in memory of the fallen, and they have now just completed a project to provide some Pulpit falls for Fotheringhay church.

The group is now moving on to a project inspired by Mary Queen of Scots and this will carry on into the summer. Once the weather is suitable the group intends to hold its meeting in the Church rather than the village hall. The meetings as before will be on alternate Thursday afternoons from 2:00-4:00pm.

If any of you would like to attend these meetings – even if just for a chat to see what is going on – please just drop in or email me to express your interest. The schedule for the next round of meetings is shown below:

23rd May | 6th June – D Day! | 20th June | 4th July

Further meetings will be updated once the schedule is confirmed.

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
