About Us

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 1300 members and over 60 groups throughout New South Wales.

The Guild’s headquarters in Concord West is currently being redeveloped into a 3 story 'Centre of Excellence for Embroidery'. Once completed it will have multiple gallery spaces, a lift, several workshops areas.  It will be full of things embroiderers love and will make you want to linger longer!
