Wokingham Embroiderers Group

The Wokingham Embroiderers Group is based in Berkshire and attracts members and visitors from many of the surrounding towns such as Bracknell, Crowthorne, Reading, Sandhurst and Yateley.

We are a friendly group who welcome everyone from complete beginners to very experienced textile artists. Visitors are always made most welcome at our monthly meetings in Wokingham, at workshops and our ‘open’ activities. For full details please go to the Programme section of this website.

Our other activities include stitching sessions, members’ challenges, members’ travelling books, group projects and exhibitions of members’ work. We produce a free regular newsletter. If you would like to receive it, just let us know by going to the Contact Us section of this website.
