This week saw the launch of a new website aimed at bringing together some of the activities of the embroidery guilds in South Africa. Titled Embroidery Network - South Africa, it lists contact information about some the guilds that are scattered throughout the country. But there is more too.
It also provides a forum for embroiderers to ask questions and share information, and it is a centralised place for advertising upcoming embroidery events. Its always disappointing to arrive somewhere and find that you have just missed a super stitching event. Now you can check here and see what's on before you plan your trip. I hope that anyone planning an exhibition will post the details well before the time so we can make sure we are there at the time of the event.
If you would like to see what embroidery is being done in the various areas around the country, click on the Gallery button on the ENSA website and you will find lots of beautiful embroidery to see. What a wonderful collection there is! Some prize winning pieces among them. You can go directly to the Embroidery Network homepage if you click here.
