Annual Exhibition 2022
We are going full steam ahead to plan a full exhibition at the Albert Hall from 16-18 September. It will be great to get back to a full exhibition in such a lovely space to share the embroidery we have done over the last few years. The exhibition will be open from 10 – 4 on all three days and we would love to see you there.

Let’s celebrate the Guild’s 60th birthday anniversary
The ACT Embroiderers’ Guild is turning 60 this year. How about we celebrate by putting items in the exhibition in September with a 60th birthday or diamond anniversary theme. Some years ago we had a ‘diamond’ challenge so maybe we could recycle some of those entries for this year.
However, it would be really good to embroider something new with a 60th or a diamond birthday theme. And then the light dawned – how about a candle theme (a bad pun that!). A few years ago, there was a candle embroidery in inspirations (issue 104 from 2019) made by wrapping a piece of embrodiery round a cardboard cylinder and then making a ‘flame’ out of gold leather which was fastened to the top.

The Guild’s ‘Stitching Weekend’ was held at the Greenhills Conference Centre 20-22 May 2022. Once again it was a lovely weekend with lots of stitching accomplished along with lots of chatter and fun.
