West Bridgford Embroiderers’ Guild -
Stepping Up and Out – in Nottingham and beyond.

The West Bridgford Branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild is a friendly and enthusiastic group of over 50 members. They share a wide range of interests within stitched textiles including embroidery and textile art. Many members exhibit their work both locally and nationally, others enjoy regular meetings and workshops where they can develop new interest and learn from the expertise of others.

This year’s exhibition draws inspiration from anything in the surrounding area. Members have been given free rein to interpret the theme in any way they wish, the only provisos were that the work has been completed in the past year and includes some stitch.

The group piece, Doors and Gates, is made up of individual canvases, all the same size and orientation and interpreted by members as they wish.
