The Winnipeg Embroiderers’ Guild is a group of people interested in all aspects of needle arts, such as blackwork, Florentine, cross-stitch, crewel, goldwork embroidery, tatting, hardanger, lacemaking, Battenburg lace, to name just a few.
Our members' skills range from absolute beginners to masters and designers!
The Guild was founded in 1973 as a project for Winnipeg's Centennial. As members of WEG traveled around Canada, they met people in other guilds, which led to the formation of a national association, which continues to grow. More of our history can be found here.
Meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month, September to June.
7:00 p.m to 9:15 p.m.
Our doors open at 6:30 p.m. for members to gather, stitch and meet.
We are located at St. Mary’s Road United Church, 613 St. Mary’s Road in the St. Vital area of Winnipeg. Parking is easiest on St. Anne's Road. There is an entrance into the church hall directly from the street.
Membership information, as well as a map showing our location, can be found on our Membership page.
