Rugby RSN Exhibit and Lecture

If you’re interested in seeing the embroidery of the students who are studying at the Royal School of Needlework, Rugby, now is your chance. It closes on Saturday, June 23rd which make this weekend the perfect time to plan a visit to Rugby.

This is the first exhibition to be held by the Royal School of Needlework in Rugby.

It will showcase the work of approximately twenty students studying hand embroidery on the Certificate and Diploma courses held in Rugby Library and Art Gallery since September 2011.

The intricate needlework exhibits demonstrate embroidery techniques executed at a very high level, celebrating the success of this new branch of the Royal School of Needlework.

The exhibit is at the Rugby Art Gallery and Museum, Little Elborow Street  Warwickshire CV21 3BZ. Entry is free.

Nicola Jarvis, my teacher, and our good friend Dave.

After the exhibit closes, in early July, you have the opportunity to hear a talk entitled “With just a needle and thread, 140 years of the Royal School of Needlework” by Dr. Susan Kay Williams, the RSN’s Chief Executive.

Following on from the Summer Exhibition this fully illustrated talk will feature commissions, pieces for major public events and work by students past and present, and show what can be achieved with just a needle and thread.  You do not have to be a stitcher to enjoy this stimulating and eye-opening lecture.

Rugby Art Gallery and Museum Tuesday 10 July 2012, 7 – 8pm

    • Hi Monica,
      Why, yes it is! I haven’t seen it for months since I had it framed and left it there for the exhibit. It will be good to bring it home after the goldwork course this summer.
      Liebe Grusse,

      • How exciting to have it on display for all to see! I enjoyed following your posts last year as you worked on this project. And am looking forward to your gold work class. I’ve taken a few day classes through RSN in San Francisco, but it’s not the same as Hampton Court. Hope you have a wonderful time!

  1. I went to see the exhibtion – the work is beautiful. It was a pleasure to see your beautiful work too Kathy.

  2. Kathy,

    How exciting! That must be your DH in that picture too, I bet! What a great guy – totally supportive of you in your stitching endeavors…all the good ones are taken! 🙂

    You are very lucky and gifted to have your talent so displayed. You have every right to be proud.

    I eagerly look forward to your goldwork lessons. I can’t wait!

    Hugs and Love from across the pond,

  3. Don’t know why it has taken me so long to look at the RSN exhibit, but I finally did. What a thrill to see your work on display. Mom
