Janet Summerton

Sadly, we have to let you all known that Janet Summerton has recently passed away.
Janet was a member of the Brighton Embroidery Guild and our secretary for many years.
She was very skilled in the art of 'Shadow Work',  and enjoyed working on sheer fabrics. In April this year she ran a workshop for us passing on her skills in Shadow Work to our members.

Shown below is an example of the Shadow Work technique she taught us. 






Our branch has been established since 1982.

It is open to all people interested in embroidery and textiles, whatever their ability.

Our friendly group enjoys a varied programme of talks, workshops, exhibitions and visits throughout the year.
