Repairs and Commissions

We are happy to receive requests from the public for work on
items both old and new. Some examples:

  • Conservation and repair of textiles
  • Adding names to christening gowns
  • Cleaning and restoring old embroideries
  • Completion of canvaswork and cross stitch items
  • Creating wedding pillows
  • Church and school banners
  • Birthday gifts
  • Special and unique items of all kinds

HOW TO MAKE A REQUEST

Contact us with as much detail as possible. We’d like to know:

  • Your contact details
  • Name of the owner of the piece
  • History of the piece
  • Details of request
  • Size of piece
  • Completion date required
  • A photo of the piece if possible

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

  • The EGV Commissions Coordinator contacts a Guild member to see if the request can be managed, then contacts you
  • The Guild recommends an hourly rate, plus a commission to the Guild
  • Costs will be agreed upon before any work is undertaken
  • Matching  old fabrics and threads is sometimes difficult, but all requirements will be approved by you before any work begins.

IT TAKES TIME!

Organising and then completing a commission can take a considerable amount of time. Please allow as much time as possible.

stitch, make friends
