Annual Exhibition 2023
Our next Annual Exhibition will be on 15th – 17th September 2023 at the Albert Hall. We will be open from 10am to 4pm with a lovely cafe, lots of embroidered items for sale, great bargains on second hand goodies along with a beautiful display of hundreds of embroideries covering the full spectrum of embroidery styles. A lovely mix of contemporary and tradition, including a display of things made by our Young Stitchers.
Entry fees are $10 for adults and $8 for concession holders. Children under 12 are free. We will accept credit cards and Eftpos with no surcharge.
A retrospective of members’ work called “How Things Began” will also be held. A display of some of the first items members stitched when they began embroidery. Visitors to the Exhibition will be able to compare and contrast beginning pieces with current embroideries.
We encourage all of our members to enter work that they have completed since the last exhibition. There is no formal judging of entries (just some viewers choice) and we welcome all standards of work to share what our members have been up to. Entry forms need to be returned to the guild by 28th August, although you have until 14th September to finish the items. Feel free to submit as many entries as you can.
The Guild will have commission sales for the recycle table and the gift shop at the Exhibition. Guild members can sell items on commission for the gift shop and recycle table. The guild takes a 20% commission on all sales. To register items for commission sales, please read the information sheets and complete the relevant forms as listed below.
Each May, we spend a weekend at the Greenhills Conference Centre at Stromlo. It is a chance to catch up with like minded people and spend a weekend doing embroidery without the usual interruptions of daily life. With lots of food and lots of fun it is open to members and non-members.
