Another forthcoming event!

I'm delighted to announce that we will be holding another embroidery training day with Jacqui Macdonald, the RSN tutor.

On Saturday, 11th October she will be coming to Oxford to teach us silk shading embroidery. This is widely used in church needlework, and indeed in many other contexts. Please email me at if you would like to know more, or to book a place on the course. The price is £45, and the course runs from 10am till 4pm. Space is limited so please don't delay!

This is an example of silk shading, where long and short stitch is used to create an effect reminiscent of painting

Jacqui came to Oxford in February 2013 and taught the Guild group a variety of techniques including stumpwork and whitework. It was a wonderful day and we all learnt a lot, although we all remember it most as the day Pope Benedict's resignation was announced which saddened us a great deal.
