World Embroidery Day 2023

1st September 2023

Once again it was lovely to hear the stories from people around the world celebrating World Embroidery Day.

On the local front, our very own Embroiderers’ Guild of South Australia took the opportunity to gather in public and celebrate the joy of needle and thread for all to see.

Happy World Embroidery Day! What fun, stitching at Plant 4 in Bowden with members of the Sunday Stitchers from The Embroiderers’ Guild of South Australia. Great coffee, great company!’

Further north, as part of their World Embroidery Day celebrations, members of The Embroiderers’ Guild of Queensland were set a challenge to upcycle a second-hand kit into something usable and pleasing.

Once completed, the challenge entries were displayed, and the public were invited to enjoy their handiwork on World Embroidery Day with around 200 visitors in attendance.

Some of the entries included hats, toys, clothing, bags, tablecloths, wall hangings, sewing accessories, plant holders and Christmas decorations.
