To All Embroidery Guild Members
Due to the Corona Virus emergency Brighton Embroiderers Guild and Young Stitchers will not be meeting until September. Please read the March 2020 Newsletter for further details.
Brighton Embroidery Guild is affiliated to the National Embroiderer’s Guild. It is run by the branch committee with the support of all its members. Our meetings are for ‘fun, friendship and fellowship’ with the opportunity to learn from each other. We organise speakers, day classes and stitching days. In addition, members can take part in exhibitions, branch competitions and the June Garden Party.
Probably the most important reason for joining the Brighton Guild, is to enjoy stitching in a friendly atmosphere, whether by hand or with a sewing machine. We welcome stitchers of all ability.
Regional days extend the ‘fun, friendship and fellowship’ to a wider area. There are regional
competitions and Summer Schools. Members of the Embroiderers Guild can attend meetings anywhere in the UK. Nationally, there is a library, a superb embroidery collection, and a wonderful collection of folios (which members and branches can borrow.) The National Guild’s ‘Contact’ Magazine will keep you up to date with Guild matters and there are on-line and other courses. Items for sale, include reduced price threads, books, and also the Stitch and Embroidery magazines.
