The large embroidery wall hanging project that was completed by members of the former Dumfries & District branch of the Embroiderers Guild, many of whom are members of TED, is on display along with the main Galloway Hoard itself, in Kirkcudbright Galleries until 10th July 2022. The hanging can be found in the space that used to house the cafe.

Branch members were asked to stitch squares inspired either by Celtic styles, or by the treasures found within the Hoard itself, many of which are gold.

Our weekly stitch meetings have had several sessions of group work on our combined Trees project for the Triennial Textiles Exhibition at Gracefield Arts Centre in Dumfries Sat. 2nd April 2022 – Sat. 7th May 2022.

The photos below show work in progress on some of the main ‘tree trunks’ that will hang in the stairwell at the Arts Centre. These trees will be adorned with all sorts of birds, beasts and bugs, all made by our members
