About Us

About Us

Romford Embroiderers meet once a month on a Saturday afternoon to enjoy a varied programme of speakers and activities with plenty of opportunity for social interaction.  Workshops and outings are organised on a regular basis.  Visitors are welcome to attend up to three meetings without an obligation to join.

There are many different types of embroidery and textile art, and many of these are practiced by individual members – traditional, modern and mixed media and each technique has its own artistic style.  Visit our gallery page to see examples of our members’ work.  As you will see, we are all very different, but we all have one thing in common – we love to be creative.

Our Aims

The aims of Romford Embroiderers are to bring like-minded people together to inspire, encourage and provide education in the art of embroidery, needlework and related textile arts in a friendly and inclusive environment.

To provide or assist in the provision of social meetings, speakers, exhibitions and workshops in the art of embroidery, needlework or related textile arts. This includes face to face and/or online meetings.


Our group was started in 1992 by Wendy and Patricia who wanted to share their passion for embroidery with other embroidery enthusiasts, and to be able to share ideas and learn from each other. They contacted the Embroiderers’ Guild and the Romford Branch was started. From there it went from strength to strength to become what it is today, and we now have around fifty members.

Please note that from May 2021 Romford Embroiderers is an independent stitch group affiliated to the Embroiderers’ Guild.  If you need further information about EG then please click HERE.
