ABOUT THE GUILD
The Mount Gambier branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild of SA was formed in March 1970, springing from members of the local CWA. It was initially composed of 11 members and grew slowly over the years. The branch held classes and exhibitions in Mount Gambier and also hosted several State conferences, with members from around SA attending.
The current membership is 17 members, who work in a wide variety of techniques and enjoy a vibrant social connection.
