2016 Embroidery Exhibition

The committee is working hard to put together the upcoming Witwatersrand Embroiderer’s Guild Exhibition which will be showcasing work done by Guild members over the past two years.

The piece started by Dolly Willowstone sometime in the early 20th Century (we believe), hidden for many years in a garage, and completed this year by Veronica Talbot will also be on display — see the image at the top of the page.

Our Guild members produce the most magnificent and inspirational work. Even husbands and sons have been awed when they’ve visited in previous years. Bring them along, and tell your friends, family, and strangers you meet in the shops to pop in too.

It is being held at the Roosevelt Park Recreation Centre, Preller Drive, on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th October from 10am-5pm. There will be prizes to be won, completed items (Christmas gifts?) and embroidery supplies will be on sale, and your ticket entitles you to delicious tea and cake in our tea room.
