West Country Embroiderers - 40th Anniversary 2013
textile art and mixed media
West Country Embroiderers was founded in 1973 with the aim of promoting and encouraging the skill of embroidery to all levels of ability. Today we have almost 1000 members from an area covering Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, Somerset and Wiltshire and encompassing all manner of textiles and needlecrafts.
Because of the large geographical area covered thirty five individual groups have been formed. Each group is autonomous with a Group Representative appointed to ensure the smooth running of the organisation. Groups normally meet monthly.
Residential courses for our members are held in February/March and October at The Kingcombe Centre in Tollor Porcorum, Nr Dorchester, and in October at Treloyan Manor in St Ives.
Summer and Winter Newsletters are distributed to all members to keep them up to date with all that is going on within and around WCE.
Now on Facebook - join us there for information from the groups.
