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.

Please read our current newsletter to find out more about our activities. It can be found at the bottom of this page.

WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING RECENTLY                            
OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN

There is a thread that leads though last years' and this years' programme which lead to our exhibition starting 14 April 2018. We live close to a World Heritage Site, which contains some of the earliest cotton spinning and weaving factories in the world. We developed and explored ideas based on this. Click here to see more.


April 14th to May 11th 2018

Over and Over and Over Again Branch Exhibition

Over and Over and Over Again Photos
This was a big celebration of the work we do. There were two group projects, digitally printed cushions and room boxes. Members also displayed their own work based on the big cotton mills of the Derwent Valley. Click on photo to get a  peek of our exhibition.

This seem to go well judging by the photos and video uploaded on the Region's homepage. Here is a photo of our boxes on display. Still looking good!

TRAVELLING STITCH BOOKS

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. 

July 2018

 Our travelling books are finally finished this month with chain stitch. They are now with their owners who will bring them to our next meeting in September. Until then click on the photo to see more.
