Awards & Grants for Members

The EAC/ACB offers its members financial assistance to further their knowledge of embroidery. The Memorial Fund is available to individual members and chapters. The Seminar Grant covers the seminar registration fee for members. 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. Those are the Original Design Award, Pulled Thread Award, Seminar Group Project Award, Seminar Theme Award and the Viewers’ Choice Award. The EAC/ACB administers The Leonida Leatherale Award (in odd-numbered years) on behalf of the Winnipeg Embroiderers’ Guild.

The Service Pin Award provides members the chance to recognize another member for service to the EAC/ACB.

See lists of the past recipients of the awards and grants. Youth awards are through the Eleanor Thomas Youth Award.
