Branch Member Benefits


Eastern Region members with Suffolk Puffs

One good reason to join a branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild is the lovely friends you will make! You will meet people who share your interest and passion for embroidery and textiles, and whatever your or their skill levels, your ages and walks of life you will straight away have something in common.

When you attend your first workshop, the stranger at the bench beside you will soon become a friend when you get talking, compare results, laugh over mistakes, admire each other’s work and chat over your sandwiches. I have made friends for life through the Embroiderers’ Guild. Not only are they kind and supportive through life’s troubles, they also know exactly what I mean when I say my Pekinese stitch is upside down! (a branch member)

Once you have become a member of the Guild you can join a local Branch and take part in branch activities including workshops, social events and exhibitions. Branch subscriptions vary and are set by each Branch.
