Welcome to the The Embroiderers' Association of Canada, Inc. Youth Embroiderers' webpages. Visit often as we are adding new information every week!
Are you between the ages of 9 and 17 or a student in college or university interested in embroidery? Why not invest $15 and sign up for a year? You might be surprised by your creativity!
So what does a youth member get for the $15 ($20 International) yearly dues? When you first join, you will receive a New Member's Kit. In this kit is a welcome letter, past issue of the Youth Embroiderers' Newsletter with the goodies, a Needlework Notebook with your name, membership number and renewal date on the first page, and instructions for making a scissor fob, needle case and pincushion, a questionnaire to fill out and return, a kit with all the supplies for making butterflies in two different techniques, a kit with all the supplies for making a Sampler bookmark, six skeins of embroidery floss, a small embroidery kit donated by EAC members, a brochure to give to a friend, and a how-to stitch booklet. Four times a year the Youth members receive a newsletter with goodies attached, and the Fall issue of Embroidery Canada. If you answer a riddle from the newsletter, send in a picture or communicate with the Youth Director, Linda Brenner, in any way, you also receive a goody!
There are four correspondence courses written specifically for our Youth members and the cost is only $5. You receive a kit that includes all the materials needed to complete the course. You are also eligible to take the EAC Group Correspondence Courses and you may also order books from the EAC Library.
New! Youth courses can now be paid through PayPal!
