Introduction to West Country Embroiderers

West Country Embroiderers - 40th Anniversary 2013
textile art and mixed media

West Country Embroiderers was founded in 1973 with the aim of promoting and encouraging the skill of embroidery to all levels of ability. Today we have almost 1000 members from an area covering Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, Somerset and Wiltshire and encompassing all manner of textiles and needlecrafts.
Because of the large geographical area covered thirty five individual groups have been formed. Each group is autonomous with a Group Representative appointed to ensure the smooth running of the organisation. Groups normally meet monthly.
