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.
Originally set up as part of the Heritage Lottery Funded 3 Rs project, The Sewing Group meet every Thursday morning at 11.30am in the main café.
They're a friendly bunch of around seven, who have used their talents to help us bring many elements of the offer at Gibside to life.
During the past year the group of around seven (and growing), have been involved in a national Embroiderers' Guild exhibition, celebrating Apple Week by creating a numerous fabric apples and a tree (see the image above) and designing masterpieces for during the festive season.
Or they may be involved in a particular area. Such as designing and making a made-to-measure curtain for the chapel to help prevent birds from mistakenly flying in.
