About our Group

Laterals Stitchers was formed in 1991 with the aim of designing, stitching and creating innovative textile art and embroidery to exhibit to a wide audience. Members are usually experienced embroiderers who like to think ‘outside the box’. The group has exhibited in art galleries (including Gallery 76), various community venues and in travelling exhibitions.

Every two years group members work towards an exhibition of new and original works. In recent years the exhibition has been held at the Old Court House in Wollongong over a weekend. During a two year period members create works on the theme chosen by members.

We share our ideas, develop and hone skills and techniques but choose to work individually and independently. Themes are put forward co-operatively and discussed. Group workshops expand and extend minds and techniques – a bit of 'lateral' thinking here and there. The end result is always creative and different from each other.

Our membership is widespread geographically. The southern most member hails from Jervis Bay and our most northerly member is from the NSW-Queensland border area. Most members travel to Concord West for our monthly meeting and activity and at the same time see the latest gallery exhibition and visit the Guild library.

If you feel you wish to join us, then come to a meeting and see if our style suits your creative endeavours.
