About the Guild

The Swiss Hand Embroiderers’ Guild was founded in 2015 as a not-for-profit organization by Swiss embroidery artist Claudia Jäggi to bring handembroidery (incl. crossstitch and beadembroidery) back into the spotlight in Switzerland.

This website features selected fibre artists with main focus on hand embroidery that are or were located in Switzerland.

There are also occasionally articles about the history of the Swiss textile industry with links to sources and exhibitions etc.

Furthermore, the Swiss Hand Embroiderers’ Guild is curating a fiber related (international) project each year.
