Welcome to the Blog for the City of York Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild
In June 2018, we will be meeting at the Methodist Church, New Earswick and
in July 2018 we will be meeting at Huntington Communtiy Centre (10:00am - 1:00pm only in July) because of refurbishments to the Folk Hall.
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 £4 on the door for a meeting and would expect them to join after two visits if they wish to continue to enjoy our meetings. Visitors who are members of another branch of the Embroiderers' Guild pay the members' fee of £2.00 on production of their current membership card.
Members pay £2.00 on the door at each meeting. Annual membership is currently £49.00 per year (2017-18). 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.
