Project 150

Project 150 Panels

To celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, EAC has undertaken a big embroidery project in the form of two panels, each 61 x 92 centimetre (2 x 3 feet). They represent what it is to be Canada and the design is focused in the centre on a mighty Maple tree. From the Northern Lights in the north to the forests, mountains, streams and lakes, from the abundance of wild provincial birds, to mining, farming, fishing—all the many facets of Canada are featured on these two fine linen canvases. One is based in the West, and the other is based in the East of Canada.

To see more images of Project 150, please check out our Blog.

Learn how to participate in our Project 150.

There is still time for guilds and individual members to book stitching time on one of the panels in the summer or fall 2016. Please contact Helen McCrindle, Project Leader for available times in the East and West.

Courses

Please note that all courses are available to current members of EAC only. Check with our Education Director if you have any questions or concerns.

Heritage Collection Items

Heritage Collection, Heart-Shaped Purse

Janice Routley, our Heritage specialist introduces us to some really fabulous pieces including a religious embroidery meticulously researched by Winnipeg Embroiderers' Guild member Dot From. Sadly Dot passed away on February 12, 2015.

There are other articles as well to inspire and introduce you to the special items Janice catalogues for EAC, such as this gorgeous heart-shaped purse.

Roses Display

Gold rose

Our Presentation In A Box committee is proposing achallenge for all EAC members. We would like to create two sets of display roses—one for the Prairie Pacific region and another for the Atlantic Central region. These would be available for chapters or guilds—or guilds-to-be to use in any educational way they can think of.

For details, check out our Roses page. We also have the information in YourEAC. The page was updated January 28, 2016.
