Embroiderers' Guild Collection Now On Display

Since the Embroiderers' Guild museum has a collection of more than 11,000 embroidered items, it is never going to be an easy task to show them all in one place at any one time. But it is a collection of national significance as a resource of inspiration for artists and does need to be more accessible. So, good news that now the Guild has settled in its new home at Walton-on-Thames, they have set up a small permanent exhibition of around 100 objects in their gallery, which will change periodically. This will allow members to see more items from the Collection than ever before. Even more exciting for those living out of London, the Guild is also in the process of arranging, in partnership with a number of sponsors, a touring exhibition of embroideries and textiles which will travel the country making the collection accessible to as wide an audience as possible. Well done Embroiderer's Guild! To visit their web-site, just click here.
