Goldwork Highlights Report

A centrepiece exhibition of over 90 goldwork embroideries plus a packed program of eighteen other events over two months.



Members and Guests (MAG) Day - 2nd Wednesday of Each Month, excluding January and October

‘Moving Forward’ Design Divas Exhibition

Design Divas is a group of artists which began the Contemporary Stitch and Design Course with Mary Brown in 2017 and 2019. This Exhibition grew out of the idea of ‘Moving Forward’. You can see how each of us has interpreted that theme - some of us used COVID as the catalyst, others have used the 2019 Bushfires, and yet others have used the concept of the evolution of humanity.

Come along and see our Exhibition in Gallery 6, (Level 2) at Guild Headquarters between 6 and 30 October 2022. The exhibition opens at 4pm on Saturday 8 October (alongside the Roma Field competition). Tickets for the opening available through TryBooking.

Alison Snepp - Living Treasure Exhibition

Alison Snepp is a Treasure.  Alison has been a member of the Embroiderers’ Guild NSW for more than 40 years.

Her significant contribution to the Guild and its members has included teaching, sharing, volunteering, exhibiting and always smiling and enjoying herself.

Alison’s curiosity for understanding the embroidery of the past, who did it and how, has enriched so many members. She has shared so much from her travels and discoveries with many of us and our members will keep these skills alive by using the techniques in traditional and contemporary ways.

Come along to the November Meeting of Members’ and Guests’ Day - 9 November at 10.30am - to hear more about Alison and view some of her wonderful work, which will be on display in Gallery 5, Level 1 at Guild Headquarters throughout November.
