How our Show & Tell works ...

Our group is all about sharing your passion for all things embroidery/needlework/fabric arts.  Our show & tell is both in person at our meetings and online via email to members.  We like to share new projects people completed as well as interesting finds, from books and secondhand art found in thrift shops to podcasts and website!

Each year, participation in Show & Tell earns you an entry into a draw for a fully paid for membership for the following year. You get one ballot submission per month (regardless of how many items you bring at that time to a meeting or share online), but it only takes one entry for you to win.

Below is a sample of our show and tell, join us at one of our public Sit n' Stitch events to see what everyone is currently working on

Stampede Art Show - July 7-16th, 2023

Each year the Calgary Stampede hosts an Western Showcase Art Show that features artists from across Alberta.  Along with the photography, painting and sculpture there is a Creative Arts & Crafts Completion.

 

 

The Calgary Stampede Creative Arts and Crafts competition was borne out of the tradition of displaying creative works in a country fair. The display and judging of the arts and crafts engages the community with the Calgary Stampede and supports our western heritage, and has been showcasing the work of local crafters for more than 40 years. This exhibition preserves traditional art forms and advances new and modern forms of creativity including textiles, wood, ceramics, paper and sugar.
