Welcome to the home page for the Auckland Embroiderers' Guild

The Auckland Embroiderers' Guild AEG celebrates the art of embroidery and members meet to share their passion, experience and expertise with others.  

We have a Tuesday and Saturday meeting every month and members are welcome to come to either or both meetings.

Tuesday Guild Meeting

This is our monthly formal Guild meeting, on the second Tuesday of the month, and proceedings are minuted in accordance with the Auckland Embroiderers' Guild Constitution.  The Guild rooms are open 30 minutes prior to the meeting ie. 9.30am.

10am - 12 noon:  General meeting followed by a Speaker.

At all meetings Guild members are encouraged to stitch, though we ask that you do not talk during the meeting.

Saturday Guild Meeting or Mini Workshops

Our rooms are open on the third Saturday of the month at 12 noon for AEG members to browse the library, stitch & chat.  When our meetings coincide with the Handweavers Guild's morning meeting we have a shared lunch - as advised in our newsletter.

Guild meeting with speaker or mini traditional and/or creative workshops as advised in our newsletters or you can just come along and do your own stitching.  Meetings are generally from 1-3pm however some months will start at 10am.  Please check current newsletter or workshops tab.

Informal workshops are held bi-monthly in the Guild Rooms and members can attend either workshop - one in a traditional technique and one in a contemporary creative technique.  Open to all Auckland Guild members and you will generally not have to register, although sometimes there may be a kit cost or we may need to know numbers for the class. 

Although these workshops have been free of charge in the past we would now appreciate a gold coin donation to be paid to cover some costs.

The Guild meets at the Textile Arts Centre 25 Poronui St Mt Eden.  See Rooms for a map to find us.

Parking is available in the school carpark from the Disraeli St entrance on Saturdays but please note the gate will be locked at 3.40pm.
