Where we meet

Our usual venue is out of action for the foreseeable future due to devastating recent floods. A new venue has been secured for future meetings at the Community Resource Centre at the rear of the Crawford House Museum.  

About our group

Ours is a vibrant diverse group with interests and skills in the many and varied embroidery techniques, from traditional to more modern experimental techniques. We continue to learn from and inspire each other as well as bringing in specialised tutors to enhance and broaden our skills. A monthly newsletter keeps our members up to date and provides the opportunity to show-case members’ work, and our library is a wonderful resource that is available for all members to use.

What to bring to the meetings

Your embroidery project with all supplies necessary. New stitchers are welcome no matter what their level of experience or skill with beginners given a free kit to start their embroidery journey. Lunch is available at local cafes or bring your own.


A variety of activities are offered to continue to encourage, challenge and inspire members. These include such things as: in-house workshops at meetings using the skills of our members, one- and two-day workshops given by a Guild or outside tutor, a convenor’s challenge each year, participation in competitions offered by Guild or other organisations and participation in our own exhibition which is held every 2 to 3 years.
