Crewel is a traditional style of embroidery which is worked in wool on linen.  The design is drawn in outline on the linen and the embroiderer is then free to use whatever stitches and colours they wish, so that each piece is unique. Crewel Embroidery

Maureen Robertson has been creating and teaching this style of embroidery for over 40 years.

The works on show will be a mixture of traditional eighteenth-century American designs and modern designs and will include pictures, decorative mirrors, cushions, boxes, curtain tie backs and bell pulls.  Most of the work has been created by Maureen, but a few pieces are on loan from some of her many former students.

Everyone is welcome for this celebration of the embroiderer’s art. The exhibition will be open 2-5pm on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th April.
