2014 Exhibition

Just a head’s up about two of the wonderful special features of our 2014 Exhibition which will be held from 18-21 September at the Albert Hall.

If you’re a fan of Sharon Boggon’s Pintangle blog then you’ll know all about her Love of Stitching Band Sampler.

Sampler-band647

This sampler is many things:

– an amazing and beloved piece of embroidery and creativity that’s over 32 metres or 29 yards long x 6 inches wide

– a stitched journal of her life

– an important teaching tool

Another delightful work on show will be Doreen McGregor’s Dollhouse for Stitchers (seen here) and visitors will have the chance to look in the windows and see all those exquisite, tiny contents up close! Yay! \0/

The Queensland Guild has a bright new website with a real pop of colour here and a new Facebook page here. So go have a look and if you’re on Facebook then you might want to ‘like’ their site – it’s really important to support our fellow Guilds.

Enjoy!
