Edinburgh Embroiderers Guild will be working on pieces inspired by works of art in the Scottish collection. You can watch them, ask questions or bring along your own pieces and enjoy stitching with like-minded people. Focusing on technique. Or why not add a few stitches to the communal piece devised especially by the Guild in celebration of the reopening of the Scottish collection at the Scottish National Gallery in 2020.
