Welcome to the Irish Guild of Embroiderers!
The Guild was set up to bring together like-minded people with an interest in textiles, particularly embroidery, and to share inspirations, ideas and techniques.
Our membership encompasses a wide variety of textile skills, and levels of abilities from complete novices to more experienced embroiderers. Some teach and exhibit nationally and internationally; some sell their work or take commissions; others are total beginners or prefer to enjoy their art for themselves alone. It is this mix of abilities and unbounded enthusiasms that gives our group a great dynamic atmosphere.
The Guild meets on the first Saturday of the month at 10.00-13.00 in
The Community Centre
Church of St. Thérèse, The Rise, Mount Merrion,
Stillorgan, Co. Dublin
Door fee: Members €5, Student Members €3, Visitors €7
At our monthly meetings, members meet and chat with friends, have a coffee/tea, choose books from the library, show or seek advice about their latest project, and can book into workshops. Most months there is a speaker, often followed by a workshop.
The Committee organises stitch events and trips for our members. Other group activities include an exhibition of members' work held every two years, an annual show of the members' work at the RDS Knitting and Stitching Show in Dublin and a bus trip to a place of textile interest each summer.
