World Embroidery Day 30 of July

Celebrate World Embroidery Day each July 30 - read more at www.broderiakademin.nu - the Swedish Embroidery Guild

World Embroidery Day is celebrated July 30. You can download the whole Embroidery Manifesto below, it’s available in French, German, English, Danish and of course, Swedish.

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. It is now celebrated annually, each year on July 30.

From the The Embroidery Manifesto

”We want to acknowledge embroidery as an act of free creativity, which can lead to free, creative thoughts and ideas. We want to tie our embroidery threads from the privileged northern hemisphere together with stiches that are sewn by embroidering sisters and brothers all over the world.

We want to be part of a joyfully creative peace movement. […]

The importance of embroidery must be made known and World Embroidery Day will spread around the world.

Make 30th July a day filled with creativity for the sake of Peace, Freedom and Equality.”

Wishing you a Happy World Embroidery Day July 30 - read more about this day created by the Swedish Embroidery Guild at www.broderiakademin.nu
