Great news! Our Guild rooms have re-opened, from Saturday 27 June 2020, for a maximum of 20 members to enjoy stitching and fellowship.
Some reasonable, and cautious, guidelines are in place to protect the health and well-being of our members and to ensure a smooth transition back to the new normal Guild life. We will be following Government Health directives concerning COVID-19, social distancing and roadmaps for various stages of recovery, and will continue along this path for the present time.
EGQ requests that members, who wish to meet in the rooms, contact their convenor to register their intention to attend.
For any information on Guild meetings, classes and events:
please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Please take care and stay safe.
EGQ Honorary President
Our Guild members have a love of the fine arts, especially embroidery. Throughout the ages, people of all ethnic backgrounds and cultures have adorned their clothes and homes. The techniques and styles vary over time and place, but the aims are the same: to celebrate a love of the beautiful. We continue to build on and enhance this long-standing practice.
Keeping traditional forms of embroidery alive is a key focus of the Guild. More recently, though, we have been embracing newer, exciting forms of stitching. We do this through the wide range of classes we offer for both adults and children. These classes cater for differing levels of skill – from the beginner to the accomplished embroiderer.
You do not have to be an experienced embroiderer to enjoy what our Guild offers – just have a love of stitching. Do come and join us! Discover your inner creativity, learn how to express it with needle and thread, and delight in the fellowship of like-minded people. You will be made very welcome.
