The Guild is part of a world-wide community of Stitch. The Presidents of the Guilds in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA are Honorary Members of the Embroiderers’ Guild in the UK. We encourage exchanges of information and news, visits, hosting and twinning between branches or chapters.
At Guild Headquarters in Walton-on-Thames we welcome visitors from all over the world. We recently hosted a visit by a party from the USA led by Marian Scoular. They saw an exhibition from the finest pieces of the Collection and enjoyed time browsing books and magazines in the library. We were delighted to meet Marion and her party. http://www.needleart.org/Scoular/Marion.php
If you are a tour leader bringing a party to UK we look forward to hearing from you. Your party will be welcome to visit, have a talk, possibly spend the day in a workshop and browse in the library. Visitors also enjoy seeing the contemporary embroidery displays of members’ work and competition entries.
Similarly, if you are visiting UK on holiday or to catch up with family members, do not hesitate to contact us. You will be very welcome.
