Preston Embroiderers Guild meet once a month at St Andrews Church Hall on Tulketh Road. They show off their imaginative work in displays around the area, with some items for sale and demonstrations of different techniques. A lot of great work and it seems all embroiderers are nice people. They're looking for new members whether beginners or experienced.
The photographs below were taken at their display at Barton Grange Garden Centre on September 24th 2012.
I know just a little about this although my wife is in an Embroiderers Guild group. What people do with stitching nowadays is like the many forms of art. Good stuff, made in Preston as well.
Nice piece of feltwork machine stitching (I think) framed and about 20cm square:
Nice piece of quilt patchwork about 1.2m x 80cm.

Horrockses Fashions, based on the Preston cotton manufacturing company, dressed the ladies of the world with quality and stylish dresses in the 50s and 60s. These small interpretations of Horrockses dresses were made for Preston Guild. There were two rows and a table display.
More Horrockses based dresses made for the Preston Guild.
Barton Grange put on some great displays of their own. Dog, horse, cow, pigs.
