Pleasure of stitching goes on show

EMBROIDERY is a deceptively simple craft, says practitioner Jenny Hart.

While it may seem painstaking, time-consuming and intimidating, embroidery can be easy, relaxing, and one of the least expensive hobbies.

The Embroiderers Guild of Queensland, Southport branch, will reveal all there is to know about the craft at its next exhibition, Pleasure of Stitching.

Publicity officer Berniece Sayer says the bi-annual exhibition will have on show pieces from the simplest designs to the more challenging pieces.

"Start small and, with the help of members, you will learn the basic stitches to doing classes and can use our large library on all types of embroidery," she said.

"We have children's classes where they learn the basic stitches and the more complex ones."

Pleasure of Stitching will be held on October 6 and 7, at 7 Mick Vievers Way (off Queen St), Southport, from 10am to 4pm.

Entry is free.
