To All Embroidery Guild Members
Happy New Year!
Thank you for visiting our website, after a somewhat miserable year let us all hope 2021 will begin to improve and we can eventually get back to meeting, sewing and enjoying a cup of tea together. In the meantime, we will continue to meet virtually via our Zoom meetings as we have done for the past few months.
If you are new to using Zoom, fear not! Click on this link which will show you a useful user guide. This has been produced by the Quilter’s Guild and is reproduced here with their kind permission. Zoom Participants User Guide.
These virtual get togethers will allow us to chat, stitch and share ideas. Next meeting : Saturday January 16th at 10.30am. If you would like to join in please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. as we need to get an idea of numbers. In order to try and streamline the Zoom joining process please use this method:-
- Log in to our website, select the ‘Zoom Meeting Links’ tab in the Menu
- The meeting links are password protected to ensure only members can join in. Enter the password when requested. The password will be emailed to members and remains the same until you are advised otherwise.
- When the meeting list appears, click on the desired meeting link shown in Red. You should then be connected to the Zoom Meeting in the usual way.
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.
