Nature by Needle | Exhibition

26th February 2021

There is no denying that COVID-19 disrupted all of our lives and continues to do so, so it is always a pleasure to be able to talk about members of the embroidery community working through the challenges.

The South Australian Embroiderers’ Guild, like guilds and groups all over the world, has had its share of difficulties, one of which was the cancellation of its bi-annual exhibition in 2020. However, thanks to hard work, perseverance and a whole measure of passion, the exhibition is to be staged in 2021.

Embroidery by members of the Embroiderers’ Guild of SA

Entitled ‘Nature by Needle’, the exhibition will run at the SA Embroiderers’ Guild’s beautiful premises in Mile End, Adelaide, from the 6th to the 21st March. On display will be a host of embroidered works, all inspired by the colours, textures and patterns of the natural world.

Included in the display will be many original works, all of which will be in the running to be selected for the coveted Peg Saddler award. Peg was one of the founding members of the Guild. Her presence is still celebrated throughout the organisation, not least in the spacious premises, where the exhibition is able to be held even during these continuingly difficult times.

If you are fortunate enough to be in Adelaide during the exhibition, it will be well worth a visit, with further details including opening times and group bookings available on their website HERE

Even in the face of the largest challenges, the passion of the embroidery community shines through.
