Border Textile Group members gather for a group photograph at the end of their three-day exhibition at Berwick Garden Centre.

Creative Textiles will take place at Berwick Garden Centre and will feature lots of new and very varied work.

The last exhibition in 2013 was a runaway success, with £800 being raised for two good causes which will once again be beneficiaries – HospiceCare North Northumberland and the Great North Air Ambulance.

An entrance fee of £2 will include a raffle ticket for lots of textile-related prizes, including books and other goodies donated by former speakers at the group.

Displays will feature work produced for various summer and Christmas challenges and at workshops attended.
