EG Members using Guild folios for research & inspiration

The Embroiderers’ Guild holds a number of folios as part of the Embroiderers’ Guild Collection, all of which are available to borrow for a period of a month.  They can be used in a variety of ways – as part of research on a topic, as the starting point for an exhibition, a workshop or day school, to look at a new stitch, study of the work of one particular artist or simply for historical or contemporary interest.

Hire is free for Guild members and for affiliated stitch groups.  if you are interested in borrowing a folio please contact us for more information.  We will ask you for a (returnable) deposit and to pay the cost of delivery both ways.


Includes beadwork neck purses, fragments from animal trapping made by Tuareg nomadic women, embroidered trouser leg
