EAC/ACB offers its members financial assistance to further their embroidery knowledge and skills. The Memorial Fund is available to individual members and chapters. The Seminar Grant covers the seminar registration fee for up to three members annually. The Pauline Glover Educational Grant covers the fees for a technique study course. The winner of the Pulled Thread Award receives $50 to further their knowledge of pulled thread embroidery.
We also recognize our members’ embroidery and design skills with several awards: Original Design Award, Pulled Thread Award, Seminar Group Project Award, Seminar Theme Award and the Viewers’ Choice Award. EAC/ACB administers The Leonida Leatherale Award (in odd-numbered years) on behalf of the Winnipeg Embroiderers’ Guild.
The Service Award provides members with the chance to recognize another member for service to EAC/ACB.
See lists of the past recipients of the awards and grants. Youth awards are through the Eleanor Thomas Youth Award.
