Investing in the future of the Embroiderers' Guild Museum
In the light of the recent tragic death of the President of the Embroiderers' Guild, it has been decided to postpone the 100 Tutors project for one year. It will now take place in March 2012. Thankyou to all who have volunteered to be tutors at this event, submiussions are still most welcome for March 2012.
Needlework tutors are invited to take part in a fund-raising event to raise money for the Embroiderers' Guild Museum Collection. All tutors who wish to support the Embroiderers` Guild are invited to apply to become part of a selected group of 100 tutors who will each run a one day workshop during March 2012. All proceeds from each workshop will go to the Guild. The target is to raise at least £50,000.
All the monies raised will enable the collection to be displayed on the website, thus attracting members and viewers worldwide which of course raises ongoing funds.
- Each workshop should consist of 10 students
- Each student will pay a tuition fee of £50, all of which will go to the Guild
- Workshop bookings will be made in advance, from October 2011 onwards, through this website - www.twistedthread.comProposal forms can be downloaded here
