Each Guild sets their own annual membership fee. Membership entitles members to attend special regional workdays, exhibitions and workshops that aren't available to the general public. Guild members pay reduced rates to attend ANZEG's biennial Conference and National Embroidery School. A subscription to the national magazine, published bi-annually, Threads, is also included.
