Inspirational Yarndale


27-28th September 2014

Greetings from Yarndale!  A two-day extravaganza of wool, fibres and art!  For those of you who can't make it to Skipton this weekend, here is a panoramic view of our 'pen'.

The overwhelming response to our display was inspirational. So many visitors were stopped in their tracks by the StArt project and everyone stayed to admire the details and listen to the story of how it came into being.  One lady had been told by her friend 'if you see nothing else today, you must see the Embroiderers' Guild stand'.

The work displayed has inspired young and old alike.  The range of stitched art, the fabulous colour combinations and the creativity of our members work has been a joy to behold!  

Yarndale is open from 10-4:30 on Sunday 28th September so why not come along?  We have FREE taster workshops today, demonstrating contemporary crewel work, Florentine work and some free embroidery that is guaranteed to use up all your scraps of wool!
