The Wellington Embroiderers’ Guild is a society founded just over 55 years ago to encourage people to participate in and excel at embroidery. Despite the name ‘guild’ members do not have to be professional embroiderers, we welcome beginners right through to seasoned experts.

Some of the ways the guild promotes embroidery include:

  • Promoting co-operation and exchange of ideas among people interested in embroidery.
  • Encouraging people to achieve a high standard of design and stitch technique.
  • Hosting embroidery classes.
  • Providing information about embroidery.
  • Holding events, meetings and activities so that Guild members and others can stitch and discuss embroidery.
  • Co-operating with other embroiderers and with organisations that relate to embroidery.
  • Being an affiliated member of the Association of New Zealand Embroiderers’ Guilds (ANZEG).

The guild holds regular monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of the month at the Loaves and Fishes Hall, St Paul’s Cathedral, Hill Street, Wellington. Doors open at 7pm, meeting 7.30-9pm (no meeting January). Visitors are very welcome at meetings, so please feel free to drop in to learn more about us. See our membership page for information on how to join.
