Celebrate World Embroidery Day

The Embroiderers' Guild, Queensland

149 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley

Sunday, 25 July 2021

World Embroidery Day was first celebrated in 2011, in Vismarlőv, Sweden. It was spearheaded by a local group of Broderiakaemin (Sweden's Embroidery Guild), which took the initiative to plan and create a special day to celebrate embroidery. That day, now called World Embroidery Day, is 30 July and The Embroiderers' Guild, Qld will celebrate it this year on Sunday 25 July.

  • Embroidery treasures from around the World

    Two sessions are available, and bookings are essential
