- Embroiderers GuildMay 3, 2021 by JCGShaston from United Kingdom
It has taken me some time to catch up with the debacle at the Embroiderers Guild having only recently retired and planning to join a local branch. I have now listened to your interview with Penny Hill twice and was struck by several things. You seemed to blame the financial problems on members not renewing their subscription. In terms of business this surely indicates that the EG is not providing a service that the customers want or value. The world changed when women found they had to work to provide income and a pension. This leaves little time for voluntary work, charities have lost the army of women volunteers to the workplace. You both stressed the amount of work required of a trustee and that alone required our grateful thanks, but personally I cannot offer it when so much poor management is evident. No mention was made of the inflated salary of the CEO which was allowed to continue for ten years. Penny Hill May have been brave, but we are no better informed.

An excellent chat with Penny Hill. Thank you for explaining how the Embroiderers Guild reached the resolution. Following the General Meeting, I hope the Guild are given the opportunity to continue

What an excellent interview. Penny’s answers helped to understand the decision of the guild to let the branches go very well. All EG members should listen to it.
- Guild in CrisisFebruary 25, 2021 by crime podcast listener from Canada
Thank you for this episode. It has made me realize that I am taking for granted that my local guild, and National association, (Embroidery Assoc. of Canada) will be there when I need them. For various reason I have not been able to attend meetings, let a lone work on the boards, like I once did. Over the years I have tried to maintain my membership, but must admit let it lapse more than I should have. It is this podcast that reminded me of the sentiments I once had. Your other podcasts have provided the verbal connection I missed in guild meetings, but this one has provided the reminder that it is time to come back, not walk away.

- Really Great Podcast For Stitching LoversDecember 6, 2018 by JOINUPDOTS from United Kingdom
Ill be honest I have no interest in Stitching at all, and the thought of doing anything like that will never cross my mind. So it was with interest that I started listening to the episode with Ami James and found that i loved the content. How the interest was found simply because another adult class was full, through to developing a passion in an area that is opening up to Ami more and more. Susan does a great job of allowing the content to flow like two old friends sitting chatting..... Well done Susan!!!!
- A diversity of textile artistsDecember 5, 2018 by ShannyNott from United States
As a listener from the U.S. I especially enjoy hearing from embroidery and textile artists in the UK. Susan's podcast is very professional in its production, while her interview style is informal and fun. Her guests run the gamut from traditional practitioners of embroidery to avant garde stitchers who are focused on pushing the liimits on technique, subject matter and public engagement. I listen to every show.
- Informative and a graat range of guestsOctober 14, 2018 by Lgc27 from Australia
This is my current go to podcast. A wide range of textile artists are interviewed about their practice and how they came to working with textiles and thread. The host is enthusiastic and has a genuine interest in textiles - mainly embroidery - and gives her guests room to talk about their work. If you are interested in embroidery in all its forms then be sure you subscribe to Stitchery Stories. It is worth it 🙂
