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.
  • The piece to be worked or a photo.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

  • The EGV Commissions Coordinator contacts a Guild member to see if the request can be managed and  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.
