'Forthcoming Events' Page

Welcome to the Sampler Guild 'Forthcoming Events' page. The Sampler Guild has a constantly changing programme of events such as 'Meet-ups' (attending exhibitions, classes etc. as a group) and 'Get togethers' (meeting at TSG member's houses) throughout the year, across the U.K. and sometimes abroad. If you are thinking of arranging a 'Get together' or 'Meet-up' in your area, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can notify other TSG members, both on this page and in the TSG Newsletter. See the bottom of this page for more information.


From Eilene Cross
I will be teaching 2 sampler workshops at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge UK in conjunction with their Sampled Lives exhibition. 

The workshops will explore the techniques used on the Barbara Billingsley sampler from 1653. T.17-1928. There will be a beginning and an advanced workshop. 

Please visit their website for details and to sign up. March 22 and March 23.

Stitching Day, Canvey Island Heritage Centre, Saturday 19th May 2018.

Come and spend a relaxing day with the lovely ladies of Canvey Island. Treat yourself to a day of stitching, chatting and laughter of learning new ideas and spending time with these lovely ladies who go out of their way to make us all feel so very welcome.

From 11.00 am to 4.30 pm. Bring a plate, your stitching, yourself and drop in at theHeritage Centre, Canvey Island for a relaxing day.

Please note! '
Meet-ups' and 'Get togethers' are exactly that - they are an informal way of getting TSG members to meet each other.
'Meet ups' take place to view exhibitions or specific events and 'Get togethers' take place at a TSG members house (usually on a Saturday) and involve 'show 'n' tell', helping each other, and lots of friendship and
fun! 'Meet-ups'are usually free - except for admission charges where applicable. For' Get togethers', members normally bring a plate, i.e. a food dish - usually dessert...

All TSG members are always welcome - just let Linda know if you wish to come along and she will give you the details.
