EAC Seminar

One of the advantages of being a chapter member of the Embroiderers' Association of Canada (EAC) is the opportunity to attend an EAC Seminar. This annual event is held alternately in Eastern Canada and Western Canada. The EAC Seminar offers a wide range of classes with North American and International teachers. In 2024 seminar will be held in Regina and in 2025 it will be held in Calgary. Below are some photos of classes taken by some of our members at seminar over the past few years. 2023 - 4 Day Course Canvas Needlework Africana by Lorene Salt (in progress, will post update when completed) 2019 - 2 Day course Stumpwork Illuminated Floral by Alison Cole 2019 - 2 Day course Stumpwork Pacific Dogwood by Alison Cole        

Bead Looming

A guild member gave a class on bead looming. She used disposable chip sticks to make the 4" x 5" bead loom. It was an easy pattern to follow and a good introduction to bead looming for those first timers. That's funny they both look the same! The supplies were all kitted up using the same bead colors, so we ended up with 12 look alikes accept for the one with the feather charm!                                                                       

Needlework Is Everywhere

This was originally posted a few years ago, but it deserved another look. Needlework can show up almost anywhere! This piece was found hanging on the walls of a restaurant on a cruise ship. The photo does not do it justice. The artist is Kate Jenkins and a large part of her work is crocheted and knitted food items, particularly seafood!
