Leeds Tapestry Blog

A picture of the embroidered panel created by members of Harrogate Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild has been posted on the blog for the Leeds Tapestry. They are asking if we know why it was made, who made it and what methods were used. Can anyone help? A link has been added to the blog on our list below and you can log onto it and add a comment.

Residential Summer School July 2010

Thought you might like to see some of the pieces of work from the Maggie Smith "Get Stuffed" Workshop created at the Residential Summer School at Bishop Burton College. This brightly coloured example above is not from a Harrogate member, but the colours were so exciting the picture just had to be included.

Work in progress, there is stitching still to complete in the upper part

An invented stitch appeared on this example 'Mag Stitch' ... Can you spot it?

Cones with spots everywhere. These ones did not get painted.

Harrogate Photographic Society

There were 12 pieces of work completed for the exhibition based on the photographs obtained from the Harrogate Photographic Society during the past year.

Having now seen what we can do with their images they are eager to work with us on our theme for next year which is the United Nations Year of the Forest title "Under the Canopy".

I am sure all the members of the Harrogate branch having seen this year's work will be queuing up for copies of photographs to be used as inspiration for their embroidery and textile pieces for next year.


Everyone who has visited must agree that we have had a wonderful response to our 'Bettys' theme .... the most exciting piece of work is the picture of Bettys Harlow Carr by our oldest member, Irene Angel. A photograph will be posted shortly - we need to take the glass off the front to be able to do it justice.

The fabric and knitted cakes and chocolates are sumptuous and look good enough to eat. No calories there girls!!
