Embroidery Exhibition and Seed Swap

Gisborough Priory Project is hosting an exhibition of embroidery and a seed swap in Guisborough Methodist Church Hall between 9.30am and noon on Saturday 31 March.

The exhibition will showcase works of embroidery inspired by recent visits to the woodland gardens of Gisborough Priory when groups of visitors, led by Beryl Franks at Knot in Guisborough, explored the snowdrop strewn gardens. This has produced some stunning artworks, such as the example pictured, created by Margaret Graham.

There will also be a seed swap. This is an opportunity to swap unused, in date seeds for other varieties or, alternatively, to give a small donation for the seeds on offer. It is a great way to try new varieties at little or no cost now that spring is here.

Turned wooden items, crafted from wood from Gisborough Priory Gardens and made by Gisborough Priory Project volunteers, will be on sale. There will be information boards giving details of the ongoing work in the gardens.


The usual Saturday morning tea, coffee and home-made cakes will be available. All the money raised will go towards the continuing volunteer-led garden restoration scheme.

Gisborough Priory Project volunteer, Carol Robinson, said, “The embroideries are beautiful and well worth seeing. It is amazing how talented everyone is and the different ways in which they saw the gardens.”
