ABOUT OUR GUILD                                                        

Chesterfield Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild is a small and friendly group of people with an interest in textiles and embroidery. Member numbers hover around 35. Most members are very regular attenders at our monthly meetings. 

Some of us are very skilled and others beginners. It doesn't matter what your skill level is, you will be welcome. We have a varied programme with speakers, member led workshops, day workshops (with expert tutors) and visits.

We meet upstairs in the Saints Parish Centre, 3 St Mary's Gate Chesterfield S41 7TJ (just below the Crooked Spire church), on the 1st Thursday in the month 7pm for 7.15pm - 9pm (except in August). There is a lift for those who dislike stairs. There are a number of pay car parks near by.

WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING RECENTLY                            

There is a thread that leads though last years' and this years' programme which will lead to our exhibition starting 14 April 2018. We live close to a World Heritage Site, Masson Mills, which contains some of the earliest cotton spinning and weaving factories in the world. We are developing and exploring ideas based on this.

April 14th to June 11th 2018

Over and Over and Over Again Branch Exhibition

Our cushions on display at Regional Day 2017.

This is a big celebration of the work we do. There are two group projects, digitally printed cushions and room boxes. Members will also display their own work based on the big cotton mills of the Derwent Valley.

Venue: West Studios, Sheffield Road, Chesterfield S41 7LL. 
Opening times: 
10 - 4 Monday to Friday 
10 - 1 Saturday


In December 2017 these were launched for those members that wish to take part. These books travel between the members involved who will do a stitch per month and then pass onto the next member on their list. 

February 2018
This month the books were taken home by the original members and various designs in blanket stitch were done. It was interesting to see how members interpreted this. The books were then passed onto the next member for the next stitch which is running stitch.
