IMPORTANT NEWS

The Embroiderers’ Guild have decided to reduce their commitments by closing all branches. We are happy to take this opportunity to become an independent group henceforth known as the North London Stitch and Textiles Group.

Plans for our new website are underway but currently, this site displays all the information you need about what we do, our programme and how to get in touch.

I have every confidence that our new found freedom will enable us to flourish and continue as a successful and creative group. Watch this space!

Helen Brown (Chair)

 

We are a group of textiles enthusiasts who come together to share our passion and to learn together. The Guild has existed for over one hundred years but we look to the future combining the traditional and contemporary techniques of textiles art.

Our programme covers a diverse range of subjects relating to our members and their interests. Go to our gallery and see what we do! You do not have to be a skilled embroiderer to join – beginners are very welcome. You also do not have to be a member to attend a meeting, so please come and try us out!

You do not have to be a member to attend our monthly meetings or workshops. However, it is essential to book the workshops, see our programme advance booking.
