Come stitch with us!

Whether you’re an intermediate stitcher or just wanting to get started, the Embroiderers’ Guild of Victoria (EGV) invites you to join us at a monthly meeting. Share your skills and creativity within a friendly, structured group.

We’re a group of people with an avid interest in all the needle arts. These include techniques such as crewel, canvas work, hand embroidery, machine embroidery, smocking, counted thread work, cross stitch, surface embroidery, quilting – literally anything done with a threaded needle.


We hold monthly meetings. They include a short business meeting, a “show and share” time, and either a speaker or a program related to the needle arts. Learn more about our meetings and other benefits of membership. Location to be determined.


We hold regular events, activities, and education workshops. Check our calendar to see what’s coming up.
