Many local people will remember Betty Cave – Brown who was the one of the founding members of the North Kent Branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild in 1987 and sadly died in 1998.

Betty had a long time wish to make a book of stitches and embroidery techniques. Following her death members took up their needles and in her memory stitched these beautiful examples that you see here on the website. Normally they are kept in a book, but we have decided to display them on the website so that more people can see them. We hope she would be proud to see such fine work achieved by her friends and members of the North Kent Branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild. Please click on the photographs, to see larger images.

Group stitching offers wonderful companionship. With leadership and encouragement a group can share its skills and knowledge. The more experienced embroiderers are always extremely generous in passing on their knowledge and expertise. Members of the group have grown in confidence, improved their skills, made new friends and experienced a sense of community which comes from the joy of stitching together.
If you have a yearning to learn a new embroidery techniques come along and join North Kent Branch. No expertise is required, just a love of stitching. We have monthly speakers, hands on afternoons, workshops and cover every aspect of stitching from quilting, cross stitch, blackwork, goldwork, machine embroidery, beading and more.
