Study Binders

The expertise of some EAC members is shared through the use of study binders found in the EAC Library. These binders are an asset to the EAC correspondence courses. The binders are comprehensive studies of special aspects of embroidery. They explore the history, the fibres and fabrics used, and the stitches with variations.

Online Library

This collection of resources is intended to serve as a sub-collection of the EAC Leonida Leatherdale Library. Here we will gather online resources to do with embroidery and related needlearts. This will include instructional information, galleries, ebooks, videos, teaching resources, and links to other other guilds internationally. We will also include a list of shops.

Click Digital Library to see information about these resources.

All resources will be annotated with additional information about that resource and vetted by EAC members for quality.

This collection will be one we ask all members to participate in by letting us know of online sites they have found useful. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to send an email.
