This exciting collaboration between the Embroiderers' Guild and Buckinghamshire County Museum has an emphasis on contemporary embroidery and textiles with pieces from the Museum and EG Collection.
Contemporary items from the EG Collection will include pieces by Jan Beaney, Julia Caprara, Jean Draper, Audrey Walker, Eleri Mills, and Lara Carter. There will also be historical pieces from 17th Century from a coif panel to William Morris hanging from the EG Collection.
The Museum and the Embroiderers' Guild share in the main aims of increasing access to embroidery and encouraging people to try it out. Local branches of the Embroiderers' Guild and other embroidery groups are also involved.

The panel was stitched in 1900. It was given to the Embroiderers' Guild by Miss Williams in 1964. The background fabric is woven satin, furnishing fabric. The design is worked in coloured floss silks. The background stitches are couched threads where long lengths of thread are laid on the fabric and held in place by diagonal straight stitches. The stems are satin stitch, where straight stitches are stitched close together. The tendrils are chain stitch. Parrots, grapes and leaves are stitched in straight stitches, using different coloured threads to create a shading effect.
The Challenge is open to all members of the Embroiderers' Guild.
