About Us

The Embroiderers' Guild NSW is a membership body for anyone and everyone who loves to stitch or would love to learn. Founded in 1957, we have around 1300 members and over 60 groups throughout New South Wales.

People of all ages and walks of life join the Guild for all sorts of reasons: following their creative urge; mastery of a new skill; a love of traditional crafts; memories of learning from mum or grandma; the company of like-minded people - just to name a few!

The Guild’s headquarters in Concord West has recently been redeveloped into a 3 story 'Centre of Excellence for Embroidery'. It has multiple gallery spaces, a lift, several workshops areas.  It is full of things embroiderers love and will make you want to linger longer!  For location and opening times click here Contact Us.
