2018 Winter Ornament Exchange

Christmas, Chanukkah and winter themed ornaments

Stitch a special ornament for a fellow member of EAC using any technique and fibers you want. Search through your stash of patterns you have been itching to stitch, but have not yet tackled; find that perfect thread that you have been hoarding for a special project and go for it. Maybe, if you start now, you will be able to make two – one for the exchange and one for yourself!

The Embroiderers’ Guild of Victoria is hosting the ornament exchange for 2018. Your ornament should arrive in Victoria, by November 1, 2018.

Send your completed ornament with a self-addressed, stamped envelope to:

Barbara Gilbert
4424 Rangemont Place
Victoria, BC V8N 5L6
