Welcome

The Embroiderers’ Guild, Queensland is a safe and friendly environment where members share knowledge, learn new skills, and enjoy fellowship.

Throughout the ages, people of all ethnic backgrounds and cultures have adorned their clothes and homes. The techniques and styles may vary with time and place, but the results are always the same: to celebrate the love of the beautiful.

One of the aims of our Guild has been to keep all forms of embroidery alive, both modern and traditional techniques. We have a range of classes, for adults and children, which cater for differing levels of skill from the beginner to the accomplished embroiderer.

You do not have to be an experienced embroiderer to enjoy the many pleasures the Guild offers. Discover your inner creativity, learn how to express it with needle and thread, and delight in the company of like-minded people.
