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.
