Each artist in this group of fourteen maintains her own individual style, with stitched textiles which have been evolving and developing since the formation of the group in 1995. 

Their aim has always been to work to the highest standard while looking to explore new avenues and push boundaries.  Some continue to refine and perfect their already acquired style, some relish every chance to experiment with new products or techniques. From richly decorated panels and hangings to simple works using paper and found objects, or 3-dimensional felt, this diversity and exploration of their own talents is evident in the works in this exhibition, works which can take many hours, weeks or even months to complete.

The group meet monthly for mutual encouragement and discussion. One of their aims is to inspire a younger generation to keep alive and discover the joy of the tradition of stitched textiles.  Despite its name, the members come from all around the Bristol area.  Membership is via invitation only.
