Helderberg Embroiderers' Guild
Established in 1998
The Helderberg Embroiderers’ Guild was initiated by Via Laurie in 1998. She realised there was a captive audience in the Helderberg region and decided to start the HEG. Ladies travel from as far as Gansbaai/Paarl to attend our monthly meetings which are held on the second Friday of the month.
The first meeting was held in May of that year and we will be celebrating our 15th birthday this year.
Over the years the HEG has held many courses on different techniques of embroidery with world class teachers who live in and around the Helderberg region. The HEG encourages its members to attend these courses to broaden their knowledge and passion in embroidery.
We welcome visitors and new members to join in the fun of embroidery where we share our love of most techniques of embroidery. Our main focus is to keep embroidery alive and modernise it whilst still keeping the form of the original technique.
