Last night was our our first branch meeting after the summer break at Blackpool Embroiderers’ Guild.
We had possibly the best speaker we have ever had. Lizzie Wall.
Lizzie brought some beautiful pieces of work to show us and regaled us with very funny, interesting, well researched, stories about each piece.
Her more recent works are her ecclesiastical pieces. She has produced some jaw dropping Chasubles that we were able to look at very closely. She has a background in art, design and embroidery and this shines through in all of her work.
I look forward to seeing more of her work in the future. If you are a member of a branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild I can well recommend her. She is a speaker at the AGM for Scotland later this month.
