Audlem Music and Arts Festival

Following on from our successful exhibition last year, Audlem Music and Arts Festival were once again asked to organise a display in the Methodist Chapel Hall for the 2012 Jubilee weekend celebrations.

Undaunted by this Herculean task several of our talented ladies rolled up their sleeves and in their own inimitable style produced yet another display of work for which our guild is rapidly becoming renowned!
Sue Molson at Work
Sylvia Stead, Marjorie Derbyshire, Carrie Evans, Sue Molson and Daphne Ashby all had their individual works on display tables, whilst Maggie Phillips, who has been teaching several members the art of Blackwork, organised her own table with a selection of their work.

Even though the weekend was less than clement, the hall was full of visitors and more importantly, complimentary remarks on the wide variety and high standards of work on show.

South Cheshire Embroidery Guild recently celebrated their 21st Birthday in style!

Our inaugural president, Jackie Woolsey, proudly cut a delicious anniversary birthday cake, baked by a committee member, Sue Jones. The assembled group of over 70 members then toasted their birthday with a glass of champagne! This was followed by a hotly contested “Embroiderers’ Quiz”. All members present agreed that it was the best AGM they had ever attended!

After months of exhaustive preparation, we were ready to showcase our talented and inspirational members’ work to the critical eyes of the public by holding a four day 21st Birthday Exhibition, which included "A" level textile pieces from local schools, workshops, and demonstrations.

The Committee and members, worked tirelessly to ensure the exhibition’s success, and we had over 300 visitors during the four day period.

The public were encouraged to vote for "The Best Exhibit" and the winner was Daphne Ashby with her "Seascape" design. Alice Holtham from Malbank won the best A/S Level Exhibit and Hannah Shone from South Cheshire College won the best “A” Level Exhibit".
