The purpose of the World Embroidery Study Group is to gain a greater understanding of embroidery through the study of traditional textiles from around the world and their adaptation over time and place.
The different techniques and materials used, the significance of traditional designs, the place of embroidery both domestically and ceremonially in the lives of people are all explored by the study of embroideries from the Guild’s Museum, other public and private collections and through research and the sharing of knowledge.

Meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 10.30 to 12.30 pm in the Gallery and are open to all Guild members.
A calendar of meeting presentations is on the noticeboard opposite the sign-in book in the Gallery.
