Who are the Embroiderers’ Guild?
The Guild welcomes everyone with an interest in any area of embroidery or textile art.
We are proud to be recognized as the voice for raising the profile of textile and stitched art
No longer just the domain of fabric and thread, textile art now embraces (amongst other things)
the world of mixed media, dyeing with rust and plants, print and videos.
We hold a historical collection, aid research, support students of all ages, and publish “Embroidery” magazine.
The Embroiderers' Guild exists to build awareness of stitch and textile art.
We educate, encourage, inspire, and promote the achievement of excellence.
