In the summer of 2014

TOPstitch held their first public exhibition of work at The Old Vicarage, East Ruston which proved to be a very successful and enjoyable first outing.  The theme of the exhibition was based on the gardens which gave enormous opportunities for the use of a wide variety of embroidery techniques

Following on from this we were invited in May 2015 to take part in The Holt Society celebrations of 50 years since their formation and our members spent time in the town finding more unusual aspects to depict in stitch.
