THE natural beauty and unspoilt rural landscapes of West Dorset are the inspiration behind the latest exhibition at Ilminster Arts Centre.

The Kingcombe Group comprises 11 textile artists who meet and stitch at Kingcombe, a study centre and nature reserve managed by the Dorset Wildlife Trust.Their eponymous exhibition at the Arts Centre is sure to be of enormous interest to Somerset’s many keen embroiderers and stitchers.

The group is made up of a collection of experienced needlewomen: Pat Clayton, Sandra Coleridge, Philippa Day, Sue Fereday, Gail Griffiths, Lynn Horniblow, Jean Hornsey, Mary Housley, Lynda Keaton, Ruby Lever and Doreen Woodrow.

To see the exhibition, visit Ilminster Arts Centre between June 10 and June 28.
