World Embroidery Day 30 July 2018

Monday 30 July 2018 9am to 9pm

An invitation to all those who would love to stitch on World Embroidery Day in our beautiful new building and Gallery in Concord West. Members, guests and visitors are most welcome.
Where:            Level 2, 76 Queen St, Concord West
When:              Monday 30 July 2018 from 9am to 9pm
Cost:                $5 donation to the Furniture Fund
RSVP:              No need to book just turn up on the day and go to Level 2

World Embroidery Day was initiated by the Swedish Embroiderers Guild back in 2011, since then other countries have joined in the fun and the momentum is growing each year.
We are starting early 9am and finishing late 9pm, so join us any time and stay as long as you want.

What to bring:
BYO Stitching - whatever you are currently stitching, or why not bring one of those UFOs (Unfinished Objects) you might have tucked away. It might just inspire you to finish it.
BYO Lunch/dinner - or visit our local cafes for exotic yummies.
Bring $5 donation (for the furniture fund).

If you can’t get to Concord West on 30 July then we hope wherever you are you have needle, thread and cloth in hand and the great company of others who also love to stitch.

Happy World Embroidery Day!
