Hobby-seekers are invited to try something new at Central Library.

Blackpool’s Embroiderer’s Guild is holding free stitching and embroidery sessions between 1pm and 4pm on Thursday and between 10am and 4pm on Friday and Saturday.

The drop-in workshops will offer chance to try out different techniques and learn new stitching skills.

Seonaid Elliott, chairman of the Blackpool Branch of the Guild, said “People often think of the Guild as a stuffy, traditional organisation which is more concerned with the neatness of the back of the work than the beauty of the front. This exhibition will show that we are anything but.”

Tickets must be booked in advance. Contact Seonaid Elliot on 01772 722057 or email
