We are a local group of textile enthusiasts. Although the Guild has a tradition reaching way back over 1000 years, we are looking to the future – we wish to encourage and develop creative textiles, both the craft and skills to existing, new and returning enthusiasts. You do not have to be a skilled embroiderer to join our group. Our members are both young and old – we are all enthusiasts.
Our annual programme covers both traditional and contemporary projects and events in both hand and machine embroidery, using exciting new materials blended with traditional techniques. Go on to our website to see our projects. If you are interested in coming to a meeting, email through the website and we will contact you. Or complete the form overleaf for more details.
