Monthly Stitching in the Scottish National Gallery

On the 2nd Wednesday of each month we will be stitching in this beautiful venue, working on pieces inspired by works of art in the Scottish collection.

You can watch, ask questions or bring along your own pieces and enjoy stitching with like-minded people.

Why not add a few stitches to the communal piece devised especially in celebration of the reopening of the Scottish collection at the Scottish National Gallery in 2019.

Drop in to one of the Wednesday sessions (each run between 10:30am and 3:30pm):

12 April, 10 May, 14 June ,12 July, 5 August, 3 September, 11 October, 8 November, 13 December,

Chairman's Challenge 2016/2017

25 members have accepted the Chairman's Challenge to stitch 'a flower or 2' and present them in the deep frames provided. These promise to make wonderful display for our exhibition in 2017!

Below are some of the challenge entries that were on display at our branch AGM.

Textile Journey Books

The Textile Journey Books are shaping up nicely, some titles are proving more of a challenge than others but it's inspiring to see how others have interpreted the theme.

Take a look at the gallery below to see some of the wonderful contributions already completed.


The Paisley Project
