Welcome to the Embroiderers’ Guild of South Australia Inc. where embroidery of all kinds is practised, explored, enjoyed and shared.
All are welcome, from those just starting out with needlework through to the highly experienced embroiderer. No matter your area of interest, a wide variety of embroidery groups are available to join.
The groups encompass various styles and techniques in both traditional and contemporary embroidery and other forms of textile art.
There are workshops and courses to suit all skill levels, with regular gatherings where members share knowledge, experience and fun.
All members enjoy access to our extensive library and our fully accredited comprehensive museum collection.
If you live anywhere in regional South Australia, we also have 12 active country branches.
JEMS is our junior embroiderers’ group, designed especially for 8-18 year olds so that embroidery can continue to be practiced and enjoyed long into the future.
Above all, the Embroiderers’ Guild of South Australia offers a friendly, relaxed and enjoyable environment for young and old to share their love of needle and textile arts.
Our newsletter, The Review, is published 11 times a year and has a circulation of over 600 people. Advertising space for needlework related items is available at very reasonable rates. For further information, please email the editor at email@example.com
If you would like to receive a complimentary digital copy of our newsletter prior to joining, in order to see some of the activities we have undertaken recently, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, come for a visit and join in the fun.

2018 State Conference
The Mount Gambier branch is looking forward to hosting the State conference this year. As we have a large, warm venue, we are opening the conference to as many members as would like to attend. The more, the merrier!
We have decided to hold it over a weekend to allow working members the option of coming and hope to see a few new faces who might have previously been unable to attend. The registration form for the conference is included in this month’s Review and I would urge you to return it at your earliest convenience.
We have the option of a men’s programme for husbands / partners who need amusing. A tour of the pumping station at the Blue Lake and a tour of wineries in the Coonawarra are planned if there is enough interest. Again, let us know via the Mount Gambier Registration form so we can finalise these details. More next month………..
