Annual membership in the Embroiderers'Association of Canada as a Youth Embroiderer is open for any girl or boy between the ages of 9 and 17. You may join as a member of a Youth Chapter, if there is one in your area, or as a National Member, if the nearest chapter is not conveniently located.
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 Youth Director Linda Brenner in any way, you also receive a goody!
The annual dues are $15 for Canadians and $20 for International members. You may now pay your dues securely via PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account.
