Welcome to the website of the East Midlands Region Embroiderers’ Guild. Our site is intended for all those with an interest in embroidery and textiles; and whether your interest is in stitching, research or just a general one, our website should have something for you.  By browsing through this site you will see we have a great deal to offer you by way of Talks, Workshops, Exhibitions, Events as well as being able to meet up with like minded people, where to buy products to help you create your own work or even where to go for further research.

The East Midlands Region of the Embroiderers' Guild covers Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire.  In each county there are several Branches, who run their own individual programmes, on different days and at different times.  To find your nearest we have provided a map with all Branches shown.

The Regional Committee also arranges several Events during the year, which, once a Member of the Embroiderers' Guild, you would be able to attend.  These include our weekend Summer School, our Regional Day; a day for all interested in Embroidery and Textiles and "Kickstart" our annual inspirational education programme and exhibition.  

Follow the links to find out more about us and how we can help you with your creativity or research and see just how much is happening in this Region of the Embroiderers' Guild.
