National Celebration of Stitch Day 2017

Exciting new project for 2017/2018 in collaboration with the Scottish National gallery

As a result of our successful National Stitch Day at the National Gallery of Scotland we have been invited to take part in a series of stitching days which will run from April 2017 to March 2018.


We will start on the second Wednesday of April and will meet each month until March next year. We will be stitching in the gallery from 10.30am until 3.30pm.


Guild members will select a painting from the Scottish Collection to inspire a piece of embroidery which they will work on during these sessions. Members of the public will be welcome to join us, ask questions and add some stitching to a panel especially created for this purpose.

We have selected the beautiful painting of 'Iona Croft' by Francis Campbell Boileau Cadell for the public panel, all the materials will be provided and Guild members will be happy to demonstrate and help with stitching.


This is a wonderful opportunity for the Embroiderer's Guild to share the skills and expertise of our very talented members and to promote stitching and the Scottish Collection of Art.

We do hope you will join us.







Thank you to everyone at National Galleries Scotland for hosting our Celebration of Stitch Day event on Saturday 6th August 2016.

We had a very busy day and were delighted to meet so many people interested in our work, in having a go at some stitching or just wanting to sit and talk with us about their own projects. It was a celebratory day indeed.

Thank you to Linda McClelland from National Galleries Scotland for taking photographs of our day and for allowing us to share them here.
