 "The Beautiful Stitch" an exhibition by The Embroiderers' Guild at Ely Cathedral

This exhibition is the first travelling exhibition for the Embroiderers' Guild, since its move to new premises at Bucks County Museum in Aylesbury.

The Embroiderers' Guild Collection is full of stories behind the techniques and styles of embroidery on display. We hope that this exhibition will inform and, in some cases, offer surprises in the perceived conception of embroidery.

The Beautiful Stitch represents the variety and scope of the Collection, including textiles from the 16th Century to the present day with examples of many techniques and from many countries.

For this exhibition, five themes were chosen, representing particular strengths of the Collection.
