The Guild operates as a teaching organization that works to preserve and foster the art of embroidery, needlework, and fibre art. Stitchers of all levels of skill and experience are welcome, encouraged and supported. Instruction and presentations on embroidery, needlework, fibre art, and associated subjects are promoted and provided to both its members and the public.
Our member volunteers are the key to our success through the planning and delivery of instruction, maintaining our library, sourcing resources, outreach projects and administration of the Guild.
Now in our 51st year CEG, London has successfully navigated many challenges and embraced the changes. A dedicated group of volunteers continues to look for opportunities to meet the needs and expectations of our members. Read below for some of the wonderful events in which you can take part.
Creativity and productivity abounded this past fall. Check out the "New Gallery" section below. With eight classes running from January to April, we can look forward to many more beautiful and inspirational works of art.
