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 900 members and over 36 groups throughout New South Wales.

People of all ages and walks of life make up a community who enjoy and savour Embroidery! Our members come to the Guild for many and varied 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 headquarters in Concord West is now a 3 storey 'Centre of Excellence for Embroidery'. It has multiple gallery spaces, a lift, several specialised workshops areas.  It is full of things embroiderers love and will make you want to linger longer!  Come and visit: Location and Opening Times

Gallery 76 Exhibition Gallery - As a visual medium, embroideries are best seen in person to be appreciated. The Guild holds regular exhibitions that are open to the public. There are six distinctive zones to our exhibition space that span all three floors of the building.  The largest gallery space is contained on ground floor (a combination of Galleries 1 - 4) and we have more intimate spaces for display on Level 1 (Gallery 5) and Level 2 (Gallery 6) with exceptional access to natural light.  All of the areas are universally accessible by lift.

Gallery76 Gifts  - Stocks high-quality items sourced from small batch artisans as well as the artists exhibiting in the gallery. It offers a range of unique handmade jewellery, ceramics, toys, homewares, beauty products and more. Our goal is to offer an assortment of goodies which delight our visitors, helping them to find one-of-a-kind gifts and irresistible souvenirs! Stock is rotated regularly, so keep an eye out for what's new.

All net proceeds from this endeavour are directed towards running the Guild and it is open during regular gallery hours.

Embroidery Supplies - Purchase everything needed for your embroideries, workshops, courses etc. Beautiful threads & specialist tools, latest embroidery books, linens, beads and lots more. Open to the general public.

The Guild Heritage Collection - consists of an archive of beautiful and historical embroidered heirlooms. Open to members by prior appointment for study and research purposes.
