Seminar -

Each year Seminar is held in a different city across Canada.  Each Chapter creates a unique event of classes and showcases their city!

The Event runs for a week with a combinations of classes, techniques and events.

Classes are divided into 4 day classes, 2 day classes and 1 day classes and includes both Canadian and International Teachers.  Starting in 2022 a permanent online selection of classes will also be offered, with each chapter deciding how to connect stitchers from across Canada (and the world).

Events during Seminar include a Meet n' Greet evening, Member's Art Show, various small breakout group parties and a full day of excursions to explore your host city!

Every year is different and unique!
