Welcome to the Sunderland Embroiderers' Guild

The Sunderland Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild is an organisation which meets once a month at St Aidan's Parish Centre, New Herrington, Houghton-Le-Spring, DH4 4LR and welcomes anyone with an interest in textiles, stitching or embroidery.

We usually meet on the 3rd Saturday of the month starting at 12 noon with an informal Stitch-in/Sewing Bee. The meeting includes a speaker, refreshments,a sales table and library, as well as information regarding local exhibitions and a chance to meet other members.

We invite a speaker to most of our meetings and they cover a wide variety of topics, e.g. historical, ethnic, traditional and modern, relating to embroidery and textiles. Often their talks are accompanied by a range of slides and samples of work.

We also organise workshops for members with all levels of skill and usually have an annual outing to a place of interest to embroiderers.
