The Embroiderers' Guild NSW is a membership body for anyone and everyone who loves to stitch or would love to learn. Founded in 1957, we have around 1800 members and over 65 groups throughout New South Wales.
People of all ages and walks of life join the Guild for all sorts of reasons: following their creative urge; mastery of a new skill; a love of traditional crafts; memories of learning from mum or grandma; the company of like-minded people - just to name a few!
The Guild’s home is a two-storey building near the train station at Concord West in Sydney. It is full of things embroiderers love and will make you want to linger longer!
The Threaded Needle – our shop. Full of beautiful threads, the latest embroidery books, linens, beads and lots more. Open to the general public.
The Collection - our archive of beautiful and historical embroidered heirlooms. Open to members by appointment.
Library – over 5,500 books available for loan to members.
Kitchen and lunch room with tea/coffee making facilities, microwave and fridge.
Please be aware that our building does not have a lift or wheelchair access to the upper floor (where the Library and Collection are housed).
Members’ Meeting - held on the second Wednesday of every month (except January), 10.30am-12.00pm. Visitors welcome.
