Open Lectures & Talks'The society started in 1982 when a group of women wanted to continue to meet and share their interest in embroidery after forming a friendship during their City and Guilds embroidery course. They also wanted to introduce others to the many delights of embroidery. The society has developed its interests since that time, and now encompasses all forms of textile art, both modern and traditional. To keep abreast of new techniques we invite well known and progressive artists to speak to the group each month.'
