MEMBERSHIP

EAC/ACB offers membership to youth (9 to 21 years) and adults in Canada and internationally. With almost 1,500 members and 38 chapters, we continue to grow.

COURSES

EAC/ACB offers learning opportunities to members and non-members in a variety of embroidery techniques.
Our technique study program is available only to members. The courses in that program take place over several months. Students are assigned a counsellor who will provide feedback to help students improve their embroidery skills and their knowledge of technique.

SEMINAR

EAC/ACB holds an annual seminar that usually takes place in May. The site for this creative event changes depending on which chapter or group of chapters is hosting that year. The seminar is an excellent opportunity to learn, socialize and be inspired.
You can learn about the next seminar, Stitching Under the Arch. Members will gather in Calgary, AB, from May 13 to 18, 2025!
