Learn Embroidery with Us!
Our full workshop calendar is now available … with easy booking online.
A must if you are working on the Guild’s Constructing & Finishing Techniques in Embroidery modules in the Personal Development Programme (our Foundations 2 course has been renamed). It is not just for beginners… In August, Cushions & Fastenings, then in October you will learn how to construct Bags and Book Covers and in November, a special fabric covered box. A great starting point for anyone wanting to explore construction and the fabulousness of using your own embroidery to do so. Or for those more confidant add your own flair! All delivered by local Guild tutors.
Or perhaps Maree Talbot’s Elizabethan Knot Garden, the irresistible ‘Numbat’ or Lion Panel draws your attention. To see full details on offer click on the workshop links under ‘Upcoming Events‘ above right.

The Embroiderers’ Guild of WA is a learning community for anyone with a love of embroidery, stitch and textiles. We provide avenues for those aged 8 or over to develop their embroidery and lace making skills. We welcome both beginners and experienced embroiderers.
Most of our approximately 500 members learn and practice their embroidery skills in the social and sharing environment of our many groups that meet throughout the Perth metropolitan area and regional WA.
The Guild has an extensive and varied workshop programme, a large lending library, and a Historic Textile Collection which is open to members and the public by appointment. The Guild also provides children’s activities during school holidays.
