About Seminar

What is Seminar?

The Embroiderers’ Association of Canada, Inc./Association candienne de broderie, Inc. holds a gathering we call a “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 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 Members’ Exhibition and shopping in the boutique and during Market 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! The seminar also includes a welcome reception, the EAC/ACB luncheon, and a closing banquet. The Members’ Exhibition awards presentation, along with lots of other events, rounds 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!
