Stitch-in-Public Day was created to celebrate the anniversary of the formation of EAC. Formed in September 1974, members wanted a way to celebrate the anniversary, and what better way than to promote embroidery and encourage the public to become involved. And that is how "Stitch In Public" was born.
EAC's National Stitch-in-Public Day is held on the last Saturday in September each year. All EAC chapters are encouraged to stitch in public on that day. If your chapter chooses to stitch in public on another day, the Microsoft Word posters can be edited to meet your needs.
