Patron:  The Honourable Kim Beazley AC Governor of Western Australia

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 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.

Learn Embroidery with Us!

Have you ever been curious about the creation of lace or tatting?  The Guild is offering an insight and ‘hands on’ opportunity with Kath Shadbolt in March. 

Or…Not just for beginners…. Raelene’s Foundations 1 course in April and May is a great starting point for anyone wanting to explore hand embroidery in all its fabulousness!

See our Workshop Calendar under Learning, for full details of all workshops.  Or click on your selection under Upcoming Events on this page.
