Nidderdale Stitchers

We are a new embroidery/stitch and textile group, who hopefully will be meeting one Saturday a month in the Pateley Bridge Methodist Church as from October. Obviously, this will be organised within the COVID restrictions at that given time and all necessary precautions will be taken.  We are a members group which will be run by members, for the members.  We will have various workshops covering many different techniques and some sessions will be purely social stitching events, passing on ideas and different ways that simple stitches can be used.  Our overall aim is to be a fully inclusive group sharing ideas and covering as many different stitch techniques as possible.

The following are examples of some of our existing members previous work but please don’t forget, we all have to start somewhere, and it is amazing how just simple stitches can look so beautiful with a little bit of colour added to them!

Once we are able to make plans there will be publicity in and around Nidderdale and in the local newspaper. So please watch out for this and come and join us, we are a fairly small friendly group and would love to see faces old and new in following our journey of stitching!

I like to print on paper and fabric, I like to experiment and see what happens, I like drawing – particularly flowers, and particularly wild ones as I have done that since I was a kid and their essence is part of my connection to the natural world. I like to focus on things for long periods, interests which that get me hooked. Like a tree I know, or a plant species or a sweep in the road. I etch, mono print, screen print, and often combine the techniques to achieve more depth. I print cushions and embroider them to relax and enjoy the timelessness of a sewing needle’s rhythm. And I make things out of bits of old, reclaimed things as I am a collector by nature. Proud to be eclectic.
