Welcome to the website of the Worshipful Company of Broderers of Lochac!  We research and practice historical embroidery techniques, with an emphasis on works from medieval, renaissance and early modern Europe (that is, pre-1600); though we also look at work from the Middle East and Asia in the same period.

Within these pages you will find information about the history and purpose of our Guild, our personal projects and works we have created for the Kingdom of Lochac and its populace.  You will also find information on embroidery techniques, reviews of embroidery books, patterns for possible projects and hopefully much inspiration to get you started on medieval and renaissance embroidery.

Use the menu above to navigate the site.  However as this site is under construction, please check the list below regularly for new features!
