The purposes of the guild are to foster the highest standards of excellence in the practice of the art of embroidery through an active program of education and study and to preserve the heritage of the art of embroidery. Our goals are met through lectures, demonstrations, workshops, and stitch-ins held each month in Tyler. The members may also participate in correspondence courses offered through the national organization, yearly national seminars, and annual seminars sponsored by the south central region. Members are taught by professional, national teachers and by experienced, local needleworkers. All types of needlework involving a threaded needle are encompassed by the guild. The types of workshops include canvaswork, drawn thread, hucking, silk ribbon embroidery, hemstitching, counted cross-stitch, whitework, wearable art, Brazilian embroidery, needle tatting, pulled thread, smocking, needleweaving, crazy-quilting, needlelace, beading, surface embroidery, stumpwork and blackwork.
