The Embroiderers' Guild

I originally joined Pately Bridge (now Nidderdale) Embroiderers' Guild  but after moving to the North East of England became a founder member and first chairman of the Durham City branch.

 

I have just stepped down as Chairman of the North East Region a role which I held for 5 years after several years as Vice Chairman. The Region comprises 12 branches from Alnwick in the north to Richmond & Leyburn in the south.

 

The name 'Guild' may sound a little sophisticated, and indeed many of its members are skilled artists, but it is there to promote and encourage embroidery to all those who have even a slight interest.  

 

Some members just go along to a branch to hear and speaker and have a cup of tea and a chat.  Some attend workshops to learn new techniques, and many exhibit with other Guild members in local and regional exhibitions.

 

To find out more about the Guild or locate your nearest branch, go to the website www.embroiderersguild.com
