We present the artisanship of needlwork at fairs and exhibitions. From time to time we go on trips to be inspired by other cultures.
With a lot of enthusiasm we also participate in projects from the Erasmus+ programme of the EU. Always in the context of lifelong learning in adult education.
Last but not least, we live out our enthusiasm for textile design as often as possible. Interested people meet in regional groups and inspire each other.
We are small but a fine bunch. We live, like every guild, from what the members can do. When we are asked what woman/man gets from the German Embroider's Guild, we have a funny answer available:
With us you get nothing ... with us you have to do something!
Stitch with joy! and... Make ideas come alive, develop your own creativity, participate in the preservation of one of the oldest crafts of mankind.
