Find a Branch in the North-East Region

The branches of the Guild throughout the North-East welcome anyone with an interest in embroidery and stitched textiles. To find out more about a branch near you, click on the map below. The link will take you to Embroiderers’ Guild website for contact information. Some of our branches also have their own website, blog and/or facebook page with further information and details of their work.

Individual members of the Guild (those not affiliated to a particular branch) may not hear about local events. If you would like to be included on an e-mailing list, please contact secretary.nerembguild@gmail.com with your full name and Guild membership number.

Branches actively encourage membership at all levels of ability from practising artists to absolute beginners as well as those who are still learning techniques. Adult Membership at Branches is from the age of 18.  For Junior Embroiderers’ aged 5-18, Durham City has a Young Embroiderers’ Group. Each Branch will have a joining fee in addition the National Guild fee.

Branches usually meet every month with their own programme of events. This may include in-house and external speakers and workshops. Many of the branches have informal stitching sessions in between their monthly meeting to encourage the development of techniques & design ideas or stitch together on branch projects; they usually hold their own competitions throughout the year to encourage working to a theme and promote the exhibition of our works. Members of the Guild may join more than one branch to enjoy even more embroidery related events and opportunities.

If you would like more information to be included about branch events, please contact the web editor by email: itrep.nerembguild@gmail.com
