Welcome to the Blog for the City of York Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild
Everyone is welcome from beginner to expert.
Our regular Saturday morning needle workshops run from 10.00 - 12.30 and are informal and friendly - just pop in. At the same time we run a Stitch Club for those wanting to learn or to stretch their skills.
The Branch meeting takes place from 2.00 - 4.00 and features guest speakers, national and local, from a variety of backgrounds - please refer to the programme page for more detail.

Visitors and new members are always welcome.
We ask visitors to pay £5 on the door for a meeting and would expect them to become members after two visits if they wish to continue to enjoy our meetings.
Members pay £4 on the door at each meeting. Annual membership is currently £54.00 per year (2018-19). Membership of the branch includes membership of The Embroiderers' Guild. Members also have the opportunity to take part in Day Schools which are arranged throughout the year.
