About us

(press ESC to exit if a pop-up window openS)

The Calgary Guild of Needle and Fibre Arts (CGNFA) is a chapter of the Embroiders' Association of Canada, Inc/Association canadienne de broderie, Inc (EAC/ACB), meaning all benefits of EAC/ACB are granted to chapter members. Included are: twice-yearly issues of Embroidery Canada, access to correspondence courses and more.  
The CGNFA itself has monthly meetings held the second Wednesday of each month (via Zoom as dictated by current AHS restrictions), stitch-ins (currently held weekly via Zoom), workshops and much more.

During our Monthly meeting we show off our completed projects, which has encouraged many of our members to try new styles or techniques.  The items  are displayed all night to enable you to get a close look

We run different workshops throughout the year.  Many are taught by our guild members.  We also invite international teachers to Calgary.  

See Workshops tab

We share hosting duties with Edmonton and every June we meet in Red Deer for 3 days of Stitching and Classes.  This is open to all stitchers including non-members.
