Colouring Book Blackwork


Was a great Success!!

We had a great time with Rachel and welcomed a possible new member.  We paired it with a drop in stitching time as well.


This workshop is April 29th and is part of Rachel Janzen's payback for receiving the Seminar 2016 Grant.


Please email Rachel Janzen to sign up and you will be provided with a suppy list closer to the date.  As a member you can attend for FREE if you are not part of our guild there is a $10 fee plus supplies.


It will be held at Fish Creek Library, program room Main Floor 9:30-4:30pm.


You will choose any colouring book design, outline it onto fabric (pre-work) and then spend the day learning how to create shading using different threads, designs and colour.  This style of Blackwork is a great way to start learning about blackwork!!!

Drawn Thread Workshop


Was a GREAT Success!!! We will be doing a Pulled Thread workshop next year!


Look for photos soon!!

Group Correspondence Class


If you are interested in Joining a Group to work on one of the EAC Correspondence Classes, please contact Rhonda Stagg.

Any Ideas?

Do you have an idea for a workshop? ... A teacher you would like us to arrange to teach for our guild? ... Another guild member who you'd like to blackmail ... sorry I mean persuade to teach for us?
