Windsor & Maidenhead Embroiderers was founded in 1978. We are affliated to the Embroideres Guild which exists to build awareness of stitch, to educate and promote textiles as an Art form.
We have 40 members who have a huge range of interest, experience and skills in all things stitched. Our monthly meetings offer a wide agenda of inspirational speakers who talk about their creative journeys and development. Occasionaly we have a in- house meeting were we have an informal stitching project and lively discussions sharing experiences and skills within the group. We offer regular challenges, competitions and workshops for every level providing opportunites to exhibit and develop their techniques and ideas.
We welcome everyone who has an interest in stitch from complete beginners to experienced textile artists. So if your interest lies in traditional, contemporary, hand or machine stitched we have something to offer.
Visitors are always most welcome at our meetings and if places are available at our workshops/ Saturday school days.
Please use the contact page for more information about visiting or joining us.
