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.

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!
