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!
Alison Snepp will be teaching three workshops in June. This will be the last time Alison visits as a tutor as she has decided 2019 will be her final year. ‘Turkman Cap’, a pieced cap, lined and embellished with surface stitchery techniques, ‘Couturier Chatelaine’ using interesting forms of counted thread embroidery and surface stitchery, or ‘Mamluk Purse’ using fun patchwork techniques decorated and trimmed with chords and tassels. See our Workshop Calendar under Learning for full details.
