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 area few photos of classes taken by some of our members at seminar over the past few years. 2024 - 4 Day Course Canvas Work "Africana"- designer Lorene Salt 2019 - 2 Day Course Stumpwork "Pacific Dogwood" - designer Alison Cole 2019 - 2 Day Course Stumpwork "Illuminated Floral"-  designer Alison Cole

Fox and Rabbit

Fox and Rabbit is a needlework website from Australia. One of their offerings over the past few years has been a free Mystery Stitch A Long (SAL).  Since 2017, they have published an annual sampler, issued in monthly installments. Sadly they recently announced that 2024 will be the last year that they offer a free SAL. You can go to their website  and download the entire series of SAL's from 2017 to present, for free until the end of 2024. Here are two samples of Stitch A Long's from Fox and Rabbit that guild members have completed. A special thanks to Brendon Kirk of Fox and Rabbit for designing and offering these designs to everyone. 2021 Talavera Sampler Designer Brendon Kirk 2017 A Band Sampler Designer Brendon Kirk
