The Guild maintains a library collection of over 3,000 items to support members in developing their interests and skills in the many elements of stitchery. The collection includes books, charts, magazines, CDs, videos, historical ephemera, reference items and teacher resources. As well as having excellent coverage of the many forms of embroidery, the collection includes related areas such as textile arts, lace making, patchwork and paper arts. The Library is managed by a team of enthusiastic volunteers who will be happy to help members to use the collection.
There is an ongoing buying program so that members have access to the latest books and magazines. While the library focusses on embroidery techniques and history, it also includes books and magazines on other crafts.
