In 2023, we will be celebrating EAC/ACB’s 50th anniversary. We are already in the planning stages for unique events and projects to mark this exceptional milestone.

More information will be coming about a chapter group challenge, a round-robin sampler stitching in 2022, a display in 2023 and a celebration charm.

If you would like to join the 50th-anniversary committee, contact our team at celebrating50@eac-acb.ca!

Call for Fundraiser Projects

EAC/ACB is requesting submissions of embroidery projects to be sold to members and the public as fundraisers on our website from January 1, 2023, to December 31, 2024.

We are looking for original embroidery designs that are suitable for stitchers at different levels (youth, beginner, intermediate, advanced or all) and that feature various techniques.

Depending on the materials required, the project pattern may be sold on its own as a downloadable PDF or may be made into kits to be sold.

Members whose projects are chosen will receive an honorarium of between $300 and $350. EAC/ACB will have the exclusive right to sell the project for two years, with the designer’s copyright notice. After December 31, 2024, all rights will revert to the designer.

All submissions must be accompanied by a completed and signed submission form, at least one good quality photograph and written project instructions. Please consult the Guidelines for Written Project Instructions when preparing your instructions.


needlework stitching

Come stitch with us!

Whether you’re an intermediate stitcher or just wanting to get started, the Embroiderers’ Guild of Victoria (EGV) invites you to join us at a monthly meeting. Share your skills and creativity within a friendly, structured group.

We’re a group of people with an avid interest in all the needle arts. These include techniques such as crewel, canvas work, hand embroidery, machine embroidery, smocking, counted thread work, cross stitch, surface embroidery, quilting – literally anything done with a threaded needle.


We hold monthly meetings. They include a short business meeting, a “show and share” time, and either a speaker or a program related to the needle arts. Learn more about our meetings and other benefits of membership. Location to be determined.


We hold regular events, activities, and education workshops. Check our calendar to see what’s coming up.
