The Stirling Smith is delighted to welcome back the Stirling and Districts Embroiderer’s Guild for their latest exhibition. In January 2020, the Guild began producing work around the theme ‘Flights of Fancy’, exploring concepts surrounding birds and reverie. When guild-members found themselves confined to their homes due to lockdown restrictions two months later, this theme took on a new meaning. These new circumstances allowed the artists to take leaps of the imagination resulting in a diverse range of textile art.

Stirling and Districts Embroiderer’s Guild was founded in 1982 and is a branch of the UK charity, the Embroiderer’s Guild. The local branch has over thirty members made up of professional textile artists, teachers, and amateurs. In addition to exhibiting individual works, the branch has worked on many local projects including an altar cloth designed by Malcolm Lochhead for the Chapel Royal at Stirling Castle, panels for Strathcarron Hospice, a replica of the Stirling Blue Blanket and banner for the Incorporated Trades of the City of Stirling, and a hanging for the Wallace Monument created in cooperation with the Scottish Region of the Embroiderers Guild.
