Celebrate World Embroidery Day at the Guild

July 25 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm

World Embroidery Day was first celebrated in 2011, in Vismarlőv,  Sweden. It was spearheaded by a local group of Broderiakaemin (Sweden’s Embroidery Guild), which took the initiative to plan and create a special day to celebrate embroidery.  That day, now called World Embroidery Day, is 30 July and The Embroiderers’ Guild, Qld will celebrate it this year on Sunday 25 July.
