Every year we celebrate fibre crafts by stitching in public during the Stampede in Calgary. Join us at the BMO centre on Monday and view all the great work submitted to the Western Showcase Art Show. On the last weekend of Stampede we have volunteers at the Heritage Cabin stitching on the porch and inside. Learn more about the Summer Kitchen from Stampede Volunteers and see what we are all working on.
Everyone is welcome!
These events are open to anyone, most will be drop-in afternoon events
where you can join our members for some stitching.

Non-Members sometime can join our workshops and classes for a registration fee. Please contact us if you are interested in any event.
