Programme

Unfortunately it probably goes without saying that activities are on hold at present due to the virus. We’ll leave the programme here so you can see what will be happening as and when normality returns. In the meantime, do come and visit us on our Facebook page, where we will be sharing what we are working on while we are in isolation at home. Either click here or go onto FB and type in Worthing Tuesday Embroiderers Guild. If you want to comment or add photos then you need to be on FB yourself, but if you would like to just have a look-see then you can see what is on there without signing up. Maybe by the end of this time we’ll have a great collection of new work for a ‘show and tell’ session.
