Stampeding Stitches Seminar Website


Beryl Burnett, President

It is my pleasure to welcome you to The Embroiderers' Association of Canada (EAC) website. EAC is a national, non-profit organization of people who enjoy needlework and wish to practice, learn, and expand their knowledge. Through fellowship with other stitchers and access to the very best needlework designers and teachers, we hope to achieve higher standards of design, colour, and workmanship, and have some fun along the way! Our organization's mandate is to preserve traditional techniques and promote new challenges in the Art of Embroidery through education and networking.

Why not take some time to browse through our website and learn more about our exciting organization. Feel free to contact any member of our Board if you have questions. We encourage you to join us and experience all of the pleasures our members already share. Thank you for visiting our website, and happy stitching!
