Welcome to the website of the Durham City branch of The Embroiderers' Guild. We are an enthusiastic group brought together by our love of stitched textiles, whether that be in traditional embroidery or contemporary works with mixed media. However and where ever we work we aim to:

  • Promote the art of embroidery and related crafts

  • Encourage the creation of fine articles incorporating embroidery or associated crafts

  • Educate the public in the history and art of embroidery

  • Support and publish research in relation to embroidery.
