Monthly Activity Program
Show & Tell
Each year we organize a group project to grow our embroidery skills. When you try something new its nice to have partners to reach out to when you have difficulties.
In past years we have done a EAC correspondence call, a guild designed sampler, a 3D canvas work cube designed by Freda's Fancy Stitching.
We love to have our members participate in the continuous evolution of our guild.
Our President is a 2 year position but all the others are for a minimum of 1 year, but most people continue until they want to try something new.
Any member can bring up a discussion idea by emailing our president to be added to the agenda.
Each Month we have a program to grow our knowledge of embroidery or to just have fun!
In past years we have had speakers about owning a small business, we learned how to stretch our own projects for framing and we have made ribbon Poppies for Remembrance day.
We also post the instructions for all the program projects on our member's page.
Karen brings a great enthusiasm to the role. Our team has developed a fun group of programs last year. From a Yoga for Stitcher session to Ribbon Calla Lilies.
Claudia brings her love of making embroidery easy and accessible to any budget. From Embroidery Hacks to Peyote Stitch Bracelets.
