World Embroidery Day - 30th of July (each year)
We invite you to celebrate embroidery with us in a way that feels good to you.
The initiative came from Kerstin Nettelblad and Skåne Sy-d, a local group of Broderiakademin, the Swedish Embroiderer's Guild.
The first World Embroidery Day took place in Vismarlöv in Sweden, on 30th July 2011.
In 2011 a local group belonging to Broderiakademin, Sweden's Embroidery Guild, took the initiative to plan and create a special day to celebrate embroidery. World Embroidery Day was born.is now celebrated annually, each year on July 30.
