Art of a Threaded Needle Auction

Home / Miscellaneous / Art of a Threaded Needle Auction

Every couple of years the St. John’s Guild of Embroiderers holds an auction of works as a means to fundraise and for our local embroiderers to introduce their work to the community. The funds raised are used by the guild to run activities such as workshops, retreats and meetings.

This year’s auction is November 17-21, 2022. Bartlett Auction House is hosting our auction online. You must register at https://bartlettauctions.com/register in order to place a bid.

We encourage you to view the exquisite work of the St. John’s Guild of Embroiderers, fall in love with these treasures, and take them home or give them to someone special as a gift. You can preview them online at https://bartlettauctions.com or in-person at their location on the 7th floor, Atlantic Place.
