The Embroiderers' Guild museum houses a collection of over 11,000 embroidered objects. The collection is of national significance as a resource of inspiration for artists, and for the study of the material evidence of many cultures.
The embroideries in the collection have been gathered from around the world, and take many forms including costume, furnishings, decorative and non-functional textiles.
A particular strength of the collection is the holding of embroidery worked in Britain from the 16th century to the present day.
