Embroiderers Groups


Welcome to the website of the former East Midlands Region Embroiderers’ Guild (EMREG) .

There have been considerable changes within the Embroiderers' Guild resulting in Branches as were, ceasing to exist and many becoming an Independent Stitch Group (ISG). Some have become Affiliated to the Embroiderers' Guild, others not. Most are still functioning in a similar way to when they were a Branch.

Due to Covid Restrictions, most Groups are unable to meet at present, but several are now meeting on a regular basis through Zoom. Both for regular talks by leading exponents from the Textile world as well as Stitch and Chat sessions.

Check out the Group Pages below to see what they are currently offering through Zoom.

Members from other Branches or anyone interested in the textile world could possibly join in these meetings.

Click on the Branch name to go to their page for details of who to contact and how to join in with Zoom meetings.

Our site is still intended for all those with an interest in embroidery and textiles, and whether your interest is in stitching, in 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, and Exhibitions, as well as opportunities to meet up with like minded people.
