Our branch has been in existence now for over 25 years. We meet once a month – November to March on Saturdays from 2.30pm to 4.30 and from April to October on Wednesdays from 7.30 to 9.30, at the Orchard Room, Church-in-the-Orchard, Park Drive, Grange Park, London N21.
At our meetings there is usually a lecture or a workshop and a chance to meet and talk to other members over tea and coffee.
We also hold all day workshops four times a year on Saturdays, where we learn new techniques or explore familiar ones. Workshops are open to both novice and experienced embroiderers.
Once a month on Tuesday afternoons there is a workshop, run by an experienced embroiderer, who will be able to give advice and help.
We also have a thriving Young Embroiderers’ section which meets once a month on a Saturday morning.
Membership currently costs £31 per year, which includes membership to the main Embroiderers’ Guild. New members, however, are welcome to attend their first meeting for free.
