About Seminar

What is Seminar?

The Embroiderers’ Association of Canada, Inc. holds a gathering we call  “seminar” at a location in Canada typically 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 Exhibition and shopping in the Boutique and Merchants’ 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 EAC Annual General Meeting, and a Closing Banquet. A Members’ Show and Awards presentation along with lots of other events round out the Seminar.

We are looking for instructors for upcoming seminars. Interested? Contact us about teaching at upcoming seminars, we’d love to hear from you!
