It is the philosophy of the Guild that there are no limits to the materials used in modern embroidery and that embroidery is neither confined to fabrics alone, nor limited to surface decoration.
We believe that embroidery is a fine art form and that there is no one way to create art, and no single best way to work with fabric.
The end of the guild year is looming but the involvement does not stop. Summer Workshop takes place June 7 - 12 with instructors Richard McVetis and Takashi Iwasaki. See Programs > Workshops for more information.
The Executive is moving ahead with plans to have a half-way normal guild experience next year with things much as they have been this year continuing through to December. Registration will take place in August with the opportunity to select classes for the Fall term. Hopefully we will be able to return to Wesley-Knox in January, 2022 and a blend of in-person and virtual Winter classes can be chosen in October.
