LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
I would like to invite you personally to attend the Embroiderers’ Guild of WA’s Convention, “Threads of Gold”. Your hard working Convention Committee has put much thought into preparing a varied and inspiring program of workshops and lectures.
It will be a great opportunity to take time for yourself and indulge in your passion for embroidery with talented international, interstate and local tutors. Surrounded by like-minded people you can talk, stitch, laugh, and catch up with friends, old and new.
Morning and afternoon tea and lunch are included in the daily fee. You can come in every day but why not book a room at the venue, the Tradewinds Hotel, and enjoy the complete experience. You could leave the family at home or bring them to Fremantle as they will all find lots to do in this historic port city. We look forward to welcoming you.
