Celebrating in colour

AN exciting exhibition of embroideries opens in the Tatham Art Gallery’s Schreiner Gallery on June 26, running until August 3. On show will be the work of the Fancy Stitch Group from Ingwavuma — brilliantly coloured single-thread hand embroideries.

Heese explains that the seed money to get started came from the sale of a beautiful embroidery made by one of the women in the early days. “An Aids association in Berne, Switzerland bought it and used it as a postcard, so that gave us a start,” she says.
