We enjoy visits to national textile collections, and shows such as Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate. We have summer and Christmas tea parties with traders, stalls, members’ work and displays of interesting textile items.
We exhibit regularly in local galleries and other venues such as Liverpool Town Hall, St George’s Hall, Victoria Gallery , Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and Sefton Palm House. We have a thriving Young Embroiderers’ group which meets on the 2nd Saturday of each month at the Liverpool Women’s Hospital. Y.E. members also accept commissions, exhibit work and are successful at winning individual and group competitions.
We are just one branch of a national network of embroiderers’ with Embroiderers’ Guild HQ at Bucks County Museum, Buckinghamshire. The Guild works to promote and safe guard our national heritage of embroidery and has charitable status.
