We are a new organisation, formed in 2021, from the previous Dumfries & District Branch of the Embroiderers Guild, which has been around since 1983.
We are a friendly group of stitchers who meet weekly to stitch & chat. We have regular monthly speakers and workshops.

We love to welcome new people whether they are experienced or not. Cross-stitch, blackwork, drawn thread work, tapestry – all styles and skill levels welcome!
Why not come along as a visitor a couple of times to see what you think?
We’d love to see you, just come along.
