Darlington Embroiderers’ Guild ‘In the Limelight’

Darlington Hippodrome launches a new exhibition celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Darlington Embroiderers’ Guild.

2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of Darlington branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild. Members are celebrating with the creation of traditional and contemporary embroideries and stitched textiles entitled ‘In the Limelight’.

Over the past 12 months, members of the guild attended tours of Darlington Hippodrome to take inspiration from the story, characters and building to develop a piece of embroidery that reflects an interest or connection to the theatre.

An exhibition of the finished works of art is now open to the public in the ground-floor gallery at Darlington Hippodrome, accessible during theatre opening hours. The exhibition also includes the seven-panel series ‘Darlington in Stitches’, which was created by members and gifted to the town on 30th September 2000.
