What Is Seminar?


The The Embroiderers' Association of Canada, Inc. holds Seminar at some location in Canada in May of each year. The site for this creative event changes, depending on which chapter or group of chapters is hosting that year. Members from all across Canada, as well as other countries, gather to join in the exciting educational opportunities, fellowship, shopping, and fun.

Participants will mingle with old friends and make new friends who love needlework in all its forms, taking classes, attending the Exhibit and shopping in the Boutique and Merchant Night. There is always a wonderful selection of two-day and four-day classes. As well, the one day events usually offer choices of tours or short one-day classes for those who can never get enough!. Seminar also includes a Welcome Reception, the Annual General Meeting for the association, and a Closing Banquet. A Members' Show and Awards presentation along with lots of other events round out the Seminar.

Even if you are not registered for classes at Seminar, there are wonderful opportunities available that are free and open to the public. The Members' Show displays fabulous needlework. Submissions are open to any EAC member. The Boutique and Merchants' Night are also open to the public. Take advantage of the chance to find out all about the The Embroiderers' Association of Canada, Inc., a group of people who are passionate about needlework.
