Some say not much happens in Adelaide and there are other more exciting cities in Australia to visit. Well we’ve got news for them! For those of us who are stitchers, there is no better place to be in October this year, than Adelaide. And it’s not just because of Beating Around the Bush…
Stitched postcards by numerous Guild members
The Embroiderers’ Guild of South Australia is holding an exhibition of their members’ needlework which features a huge variety of techniques and designs so broad in scope, they have called it ‘All Stitched Up’ (what a great name!).

The ‘All Stitched Up’ exhibition includes award winning pieces from the recent 2018 Royal Adelaide Show where Guild members won a total of 35+ prizes for their embroidery, 10 of which were by their junior embroiderers (JEMS).

Two years in the making, this event will feature a stunning array of beautiful textile pieces, reflecting the various techniques and disciplines of embroidery. With so many designs created from every type of thread, material and style imaginable on display, this truly is a magnificent celebration of needlework not to be missed.
The ‘All Stitched Up’ exhibition is at The Embroiderers’ Guild of South Australia, 16 Hughes Street, Mile End from Saturday 29 September to Saturday 13 October 2018 from 10am to 4pm daily and 10am to 9pm on Thursdays. Entry is $5 per person at the door and while you’re there, you can also check out their embroidery museum and gift shop.
