The Guild operates as a teaching organization that works to preserve and foster the art of embroidery, needlework, and fibre art. Stitchers of all levels of skill and experience are welcome, encouraged and supported. Instruction and presentations on embroidery, needlework, fibre art, and associated subjects are promoted and provided to both its members and the public.

Our member volunteers are the key to our success through the planning and delivery of instruction, maintaining our library, sourcing resources, outreach projects and administration of the Guild.

News Update

Greetings

We have been enjoying our new location at Westmount Presbyterian Church for quite a few months now and are getting settled in. We are very happy to return to in person gatherings while still taking advantage of the digital world's way of learning and sharing.

Our Fall classes were very well received, and we are into our Winter Session. Once again, we have a mix of in-person and zoom classes, during both day and evening giving everyone an opportunity to participate. We have more members who join us from a distance.

Our Winter Retreat was held in early February and was a resounding success due to the organizing committee's hard work and the willingness of participants to share and engage in new activities.

This spring we will be returning to our tradition of a public display of our members' creations. The Showcase will be at our location on April 26 & 27. The variety of work is always impressive. Please drop by Friday from 12 to 6 p.m. or Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is a thrifty $5.00, and all proceeds go toward the Guild for its varied activities.

Showcase 2024

We will be ending our formal classes and gatherings after the April Showcase, but often carry on with more impromptu summer activities and focus groups held all around the town and area. The exception here is our Summer Workshop which runs at Western University, June 3 - 8, 2024 and you can join in as a non-member. Check it out on our website.

This is a teaching guild which runs entirely with volunteer executive, committee members and class instructors who generously give of their time and expertise. We would urge you to consider joining the guild and contributing what you can to keep it as vibrant as it has become.
