Eastern Region comprises more than fifteen branches in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, stretching from London’s borders to the most easterly coasts of Britain. This makes us a small region in terms of branch numbers, but we are big on enthusiasm and commitment.
The Region organises Summer & Winter Residential Workshops and hopes to increase these to Spring & Autumn as well. We have an annual Regional Day hosted by one of the branches where members socialise together, attend Lectures by leading Textile Artists and speakers from other areas of interest, participate in the Anchor Award competition, enjoy exhibitions by local groups and purchase from specialist traders. We also organise Regional Exhibitions. Please see the Calendar for details of all our events.
