Make a stop at the Embroiderers’ Guild NSW Stitching Station.

Get hands-on with guild members and learn embroidery stitches at the sit and sew area at the show. Members will supply fabric, needle and thread to get you started.

You can even add some stitching to one of the ‘Stitching Women’ panels. Below is guild member Roz and her stitched portrait. You can try drizzle stitch – the squiggly 3D stitch on Roz’s head – and many other stitches. Members of the Guild will show you how and help you as you practice on fabric samples then add some stitches to the ‘Stitching Women’ projects.
