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.
Check out our website here, or our Facebook and Instagram pages for more inspiration.
