Gibside Sewing Group
Whether you are new to sewing, or have been doing it as long as you can remember, the Gibside Sewing Group is open for anyone to join.
The Sewing Group meet every Thursday morning at 10.30am in the main café.
They're a friendly bunch, who have a good natter with a cup of coffee and cake, while allowing their creative talents to come to the forefront.
Originally set up as part of the Heritage Lottery Funded 3 Rs project which came to an end in 2017, the group have produced beautiful handmade artwork for a variety of Gibside's offers, bringing them to life.
During the past year the group have been involved in a national Embroiderers' Guild exhibition, celebrating Apple Week by creating numerous fabric apples and a tree (see the image above) and designing masterpieces for during the festive season.
Or they may be supporting a particular area. Such as designing and making a made-to-measure curtain for the chapel to help prevent birds from mistakenly flying in.
