The idea behind World Embroidery Day is to be creative and share your creativity with others. Started in 2011, by a local group of Broderiakademin, the Swedish Embroiderer’s Guild, the day is quickly gathering momentum thanks to the world wide web! Make plans to get together with someone to share your creativity on July 30th.

From the 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 stitches 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.
