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 also provides children’s activities during school holidays.
Learn Embroidery with Us!
The Guild is very excited to present Ann-Marie’s ‘Block of the Month’ starting 16th February 2020. This canvas work embroidery design is based on the Long Time Gone quilt by Jen Kingwell. Suitable for beginners through to experienced embroiderers. Also available to country members and non-members by remote learning.
Or would you prefer to try an introductory Elizabethan embroidery piece using techniques from this period, with tutor Maree Talbot. See our Workshop Calendar under Learning, for full details of all workshops. Or click on your selection under Upcoming Events on this page.
