Canadian Embroiderers’ Guild, London, Ontario

Over the years we have had many teachers come from England to run workshops for us and in the past we have been lucky enough to have had Jean Draper, Jan Beaney, Jean Littlejohn and Janet Bolton (all names I am sure you are familiar with).

Established in 1971, the Canadian Embroiderers' Guild was formed by Gwen Perkins (teacher and master embroiderer specializing in ecclesiastical embroidery) and Audrey Locke (Goldsmiths College in London, England). They met in August, 1971 and within 2 weeks regular meetings began with a small group and the Guild was born. Workshop instructors, for the most part , were world class British fibre artists. Constance Howard was our mentor.

We are coming up to our 50th Anniversary in 2021 and would like to acknowledge our connection. We are going strong and have 170 odd members, our purpose is to teach and learn and we are non-profit and are involved in community projects.
